in DIESEL (Direct Interpretively Evaluated String Expression Language)
take strings as input and generate string results. You can use DIESEL
in menu macros or to display text on the status line.
- Customize the Status Line
You can use the MODEMACRO
system variable to display information on the status line.
- DIESEL Expressions in Macros
can use DIESEL string expressions in customization (CUI) files as
an additional method of creating macros.
- Catalog of DIESEL Functions
retrieval, computation, and display are performed by DIESEL functions.
All functions have a limit of 10 parameters, including the function name
itself. If this limit is exceeded, you get a DIESEL error message.
- DIESEL Error Messages
Generally, if you make
a mistake in a DIESEL expression, what went wrong will be obvious.
Depending on the nature of the error, DIESEL embeds an error indication
in the output stream.
