Fast(est) method for bounding box collisions?

Hi! What's the fastest way of testing bounding box collisions in BB2? Is there any built in functions for that or do I need to make my own system? I guess there is no short-circuit evaluation going on in BB2 so it might be faster to check for bounding box collisions in multiple if clauses instead of combining them. Grateful for any insight!

I can't comment on the speed, but the RectsHit command might be what you're looking for:

RectsHit (X1,Y1,Width1,Height1,X2,Y2,Width2,Height2)

Returns true if they overlap.

I love that, in the manual, they actually say "Care should be taken with the pronunciation of this command."
