Here's an obscure one for everybody. The In Range and Coerce function (Functions > Programming > Comparison palette in 8.0 and later) takes many different datatypes as inputs. One of the datatypes it accepts is a path. Prior to LabVIEW 8.2, the In Range and Coerce function would always return False for its "In Range?" output if you wired paths as inputs, no matter what the values of the paths were. In LabVIEW 8.2, however, the function can actually do something with paths. Specifically, it will check the ASCII values of the path characters and indicate whether or not the input is within the specified range. Check out this screenshot:
As you can see, the value of "c:\blah4.txt" is determined to be "in range", i.e. in between the values "c:\blah1.txt" and "c:\blah5.txt". I don't know when I would possibly use this behavior, but it's nice to know it's there.
