i have yet another question ( best title i could think of )

alUI.texture = "Interface\\AddOns\\texture"
--[[ lets say this is going on up here ]]--

very @n4l question here. (hope i'm allowed to say @n4l). gently caress it.

So I've been looking through the code of many minimal UIs (rec, cael, nc, clean, etcc). I'm just wondering what effect on CPU performance does or even memory

Code:
example:SetTexture(alUI.Texture)
in comparison to
Code:
example:SetTexture("Interface\\AddOns\\texture")
Imagine this @ a larger scale ofc. taking in fonts, various integer sizes etc.

hopefully you understand what I mean. But yeah, I'm just wondering, is it simply convenience or are there reasons beyond my noob understanding?
