Great you confirmed my investigations !
YES! you can!
Just extend the method (just some example)
I'd personally prefer that $LB(var) also follows the elementary rules of COS.Though I have no hope on any ProdLog on this subject
As you have an installation of Caché you will also have the Documentation with it.
I recommend "Using Caché ObjectScript" to start with ObjectScript.It is also public accessible https://docs.intersystems.com/latest/csp/docbook/DocBook.UI.Page.cls?KEY=GCOS
I also recommend having a look at the free online training library.The link is in the header of this forum: LEARNING
Browse Catalog and search for O bjectScript Basics
All details on individual commands, functions, system variables are again in your local instance or in thepublic reference on docs.intersystems.com
My personal preference is to a have a solution NOW.And not wait for something that may take too long for me.
just the most simple example to solve your issue with a ClassMethod:
Hi Julius,You got my point!A Stream is a Stream and a String is a String andthey are different things with different handling. The fact that they both (can) contain characters is of no importance.
Thanks! That solves my questions.I just see close to me a situation that the upgrade to a higher version ( 16.2 to 18.1)may trigger quite an effort on updating all developer's Studio. With all that "can never happen"
I was thinking about this issue from @Wolf Koelling
IRIS Quarterly Container only releases and Studio
"install some code on the target server" sounds to have the potential to work around his show stopper.
Would this include a certain level of independence between editing and Caché, Ensemble, IRIS version?Especially a kind of "forward" compatibility as long as you don't go for new features?
I'm glad I could help the community with my answers andI especially like to express my BIG THANK to my readers voting for me.This clear and positive feedback is a strong motivation for me for the future years.
