RexxVar is a simple but powerful way of exchanging data between ARexx
variables and any program that uses input and output files. The
output from a command or program (including a meaningful error code)
can be placed in either one ARexx variable or in a stem array, while
the input to a command or program can be read from either an ARexx
variable or stem array.
For example, to sort the values in a stem array called "lines."
(whose indices ranges from 1 to n, and n is in "lines.0"), one would
Address REXXVAR 'Sort from REXXVAR:lines. to REXXVAR:sorted_lines.'
The "sorted_lines." stem array would be created with an increasing
integer index, starting at 1. The total number of "sorted_lines."
values is placed in "sorted_lines.0". One can also sort words in a
variable in a similar fashion.
Substrings in a variable as well as stem array values can be
delimited by any character (or none) on input or output.
Support is also included for arbitrary (i.e., not necessarily numeric
or increasing in order) stem index values. For example:
indices = 'TED BILL'
fullname.BILL = 'William'
fullname.TED = 'Theodore'
fullname.BOB = 'Robert'
Address REXXVAR "Type from REXXVAR:fullname./nl/indices"
will output only the values relating to the desired indices:
In combination with AmigaDOS commands and programs, this facility can
provide a familiar and quick-coding means of importing and exporting
file data (COPY command), passing data among AREXX programs (COPY
command with PIPE:), listing of stem variable values (TYPE command),
creation of stem arrays from variable values and vice versa (COPY
command), extraction of environment variable values (GETENV command),
editing of a variable's or stem array's values (your favorite
editor), and more.
