Minimalist coding

How short is your shortest useful agent?  This one I wrote today converts Notes bitmaps to GIF format for every rich text field on the current document (there are several rich text fields in this form which might have images).  The full code is:

'Convert Bitmaps to GIFs for all: 

Option Public
Option Declare
Uselsx "*lsxrtc"

Sub Initialize
   Dim session As New NotesSession
   Dim doc As NotesDocument
   Dim gSession As New GeniiSession
   Set doc = session.DocumentContext
   On Event ActOnItem From gSession Call ConvertBitmaps
   Call gSession.BatchBackend(doc.Handle, "*")
End Sub

Sub ConvertBitmaps(Source As GeniiSession, Byval action As String, Byval properties As String, skipnote As Integer, continue As Integer)
   Print "Converting bitmaps in " & Source.BatchRTItem.Fieldname
   Call Source.BatchRTItem.Everything.ConvertBitmaps
End Sub

You don't get much shorter.  Maybe I should comment it or something.

Yes, that's Version 3.20. I guess I should post a "What's New in 3.20" summary. It will be out shortly.
