I'm trying to make a 'one fits all' script which can be applied to various situations, by just changing a load of manditory variables to suite each situation.

I could of course have a simpler script with less variables for easy functions, and a more complicated script for more difficult situations. However, I would rather have one script I could apply to everthing with various if and else function.

I was wondering if having lots of 'manditory variables' would create any significant slowing of the script? Thereby making it more appropriate to have different scripts for different situations.
