Table of BPATH Code Examples



in case you are following the BPath Blog series and/or you want to read/write own code you might find it useful to have an overview on the content of the series. The Table of Contents is currently in work, see below the Table of Code Examples.

The table will be enhanced with the examples from the upcoming blogs as soon as they are published.

Table of BPATH Code Examples

The bold face should support you on finding documentation on BPATH code fragments found in unknwon code. So if you notice a strange fragment as @@COUNTRY in the BPATH, just scan from top to down on the bold faced fragments leading you to example 34. Hopefully.

BPath. Lesson 01: What is BPath?

Code Example 1, * (retrieving the attribute structure)

Code Example 2, @attr (retrieving an attribute)

Code Example 3, ./ (relation to myself)

Code Example 4, Relations

Code Example 5, .. (Parent relation)

Code Example 6, $ (add to table)

BPath. Lesson 02: About the interpreter, integration, structures and filtering

Code Example 7, ~STRUC, normal structures

Code Example 8, [2] (basic filtering)

Code Example 9, [@CLASS="C"] basic conditional filtering, string literals

Code Example 10, [(@CLASS<>"C")&(@FORCURKEY=@LOCCURKEY)], Comparisons and Bool-OPs

Code Example 11, [(@SMOKER+@INVOICE)="X"], basic arithmetic operations

BPath. Lesson 03: Functions and Assignments

Code Example 12, INDEX() SIZE()

Code Example 13, Today() Not()

Code Example 14, IFF(), UPPER()

Code Example 15, {!F=@V}, basic assignments

Code Example 16, {!F1=(@C&"/")&@D; !F2=@E}, complex assignments separated by semicolon

Code Example 17, {!F=!F+1}, expressions on targets; automatic conversions

BPath. Lesson 04. Enhanceable structures, aggregations, derefencation and transposition. And object retrieval.

Code Example 18, ~*STRUC, enhanceable structure

Code Example 19, ~*/, Empty Struc

Code Example 20, Rel$/SecondRel, Accumulations

Code Example 21, aggregations

Code Example 22, !x^!=, dereferencation

BPath. Lesson 05. Sub, String &amp; Get-function(s) plus global variables

Code Example 23, SUB(.../@FIELD), sub functions returning attributes

Code Example 24, SUB(.../*), sub functions returning structures or tables


Code Example 25, STRCOMP(), string comparisons and string functions

Code Example 26, ~=, covers pattern
