Leet (or "1337"), also known as eleet or leetspeak, is a system of modified spellings used primarily on the Internet. It often uses character replacements in ways that play on the similarity of their glyphs via reflection or other resemblance. Additionally, it modifies certain words based on a system of suffixes and alternate meanings. There are many dialects or linguistic varieties in different online communities. Wikipedia

An interesting pattern around unique indices came up recently (in internal discussion re: isc.rest) and I'd like to highlight it for the community.

As a motivating use case: suppose you have a class representing a tree, where each node also has a name, and we want nodes to be unique by name and parent node. We want each root node to have a unique name too. A natural implementation would be:

Hi Everyone,

              I am a very new to IRIS Object Script Development. There is a  usecase where I have to execute a .sh file from the object script. I am looking for examples for that, but what I find is the ways to execute the shell commands. Can you please point me to some examples executing a .sh file. Thanks in Advance

We recently migrated to IRIS. Before, the CACHE.EXE executable could be invoked from a batch file directly : 

C:\InterSystems\Cache\bin\cache.exe -s C:\InterSystems\Cache\mgr -U %SYS

This will display the following in console : 

Node: DESKTOP-8H4B321, Instance: CACHE


Additionally, the pipe instruction can be used to redirect some commands directly

echo write 50 | C:\InterSystems\Cache\bin\cache.exe -s C:\InterSystems\Cache\mgr -U %SYS

I had a customer the other day ask how GREFs are measured and how the relationship of the host, storage, and DB engine all influence that number measured in hundreds of thousands or millions.  Is there any good documentation that explains this and/or assists with calculating a GREF count?

I want to access a Stored Procedure in a remote SQL Server Database. I am quite new to Object script.

The stored procedure has 3 parameters: 2 datetime parameters and 1 integer.

Which is the best way to do that? I'm wondering if I can use the link stored procedure feature inside object script or some SQL statement in Object Script.

This SP returns a set of rows which I want to read, transform and save in a persistent class.

Thanks in advance,

Hello community,

I'd like to briefly announce three new packages, available on the Open Exchange / through ZPM, that can really help accelerate modern full-stack application development on IRIS. I announced all of these in a Global Summit session last week, but you may have missed it - and I hear there's a full-stack application development contest coming up!

Hi, I tried the following exercise from the IRIS documentation. I updated the username, password and IP address, but receiving this error;

A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. --->

I can use the same credentials and IP address to connect ok via VSCode to my local IRIS...

Any pointers much appreciated.

I think it's a known fact that Populate Utility has very limited functionality. It supports only one language and one country. The list of possible values does not have so many options. 

There is a kind of tool that now can help with it, named Faker. It has implementations in different languages, including Python. Since IRIS has now had the Embedded Python feature, Python faker can be implemented in IRIS.

This formation, accessible on my GitHub, will cover, in half a hour, how to read and write in csv and txt files, insert and get inside the IRIS database and a distant database using Postgres or how to use a FLASK API, all of that using the Interoperability framework using ONLY Python following the PEP8 convention.

Adding VSCode into your IRIS container

One of the easiest ways to setup repeatable development environments is to spin up containers for them. I find that when iterating quickly, it was very convenient to host a vscode instance within my development container. Thus, I have created a quick container script to add a browser-based vscode into an IRIS container. This should work for most 2021.1+ containers. My code repository can be found here
