I want to be able to import XML (say, using %XML.Reader) to Caché objects permissively (ignoring invalid/unexpected tags/attributes), but also to validate the same XML and list any/all invalid tags/attributes that it contains.
Given a complex method flagged with [ SqlProc ] so it is available as an SQL stored procedure, what's the best way to report a non-system error detected in that method - say, for example, an error %Status - so that the SQL query calling it fails descriptively? Is it best to create and throw an exception, or are there special % variables involved (like in a trigger)? I haven't been able to find an answer in the documentation.
I've been trying to write a method to compare two local variables, which may be arrays, for "equality" - that is, to see if they have all the same subscripts (if they're arrays) and values. This is the best I've come up with so far - are there any better/simpler approaches out there?
Some Mac users have noticed "smart quotes" or "curly quotes" appearing in the browser-based Ensemble editors within Atelier. Specifically, typing "" may result in the output “” instead of the normal double quote characters.
