Exporting APL Namespace to external xxx.dyalog file

Postby woody on Sun May 28, 2017 4:57 pm

Greetings,

What is an easy way to EXPORT an APL Namespace (DyalogAPL v15) to an external xxxx.dyalog Windows file ?

And.. the reverse, also .. IMPORTING an APL Namespace into APL Workspace as a Namespace ?

)wsid
is .\food.dws

)OBS
SQA

)CS SQA
#.SQA

)fns
Apl2Scar BrowseConnect Cancel Close Columns Connect CursorName DSN DefaultXlate Describe Do Exec ExecDirect ExecN Fetch FileVersion GetData GetInfo GetWarning Init NativeSQL
Parse Prepare PutData Scar2Apl SetColumns SetData SetDelete SetExec SetInsert SetPrepare SetUpdate Tables Transact Tree TypeInfo X buildcovers dxlate ⍙SQAPL ⍙SQAParse

)vars
⍙dllname ⍙naedfns

⍝ How do I EXPORT this SQA Namespace to external windows file SQA.Dyalog ??

⍝ This question is not only about SQA.dyalog .. but about any namespace (in general)


Sincere thanks!

If you just want a single .dyalog file,
      ]Save myns \mypath\
should do the job. Just watch out for trains – they currently don't get saved properly.

How about this scenario:

)CLEAR

)COPY MYOLDWS ProgA ProgB VarX VarY

)FNS
ProgA ProgB

)VARS
VarX VarY

)SAVE MYWS

⍝ How can I export the APL Workspace (MYWS) contents (2 FNS and 2 VARS) into an external MYNS.Dyalog file on Windows?

⍝ Manually with keyboard command like ]save is OK

⍝ And also with APL system function so this activity can be automated


Thanks in advance!

Hi Adam,

I had some problems with your solution, it kept failing for me with a VALUE ERROR!

I finally traced the problem.
Copied from my session (without editing)
Code: Select all
          )clear   
clear ws
       'xyz'⎕NS ⎕NL-⍳9
VALUE ERROR
      'xyz'⎕NS ⎕NL-⍳9
     ∧

      'xyz'⎕NS ⎕NL-⍳9

      'xyz'⎕NS ⎕NL-⍳9
VALUE ERROR
      'xyz'⎕NS ⎕NL-⍳9
     ∧


Why did it work sometimes and not others?

It failed when the Object Syntax exposed the ROOT properties!
Code: Select all
          )clear   
clear ws

      ⎕NL -⍳9
 APLVersion  ActivateApp  Aplmon  Caption  ChildList  ChooseFont  Coord  CursorObj  DDE  Data  DateToIDN  DeleteTypeLib  DevCaps  DisplayChange  EdgeStyle  EvaluationDays  Event  EventList

      hange  XRange  YRange  Yield  xyz

      ⎕NS ⎕NL-⍳9
VALUE ERROR

Is this a bug?
