Copying objects from a saved ⎕SE

Postby AndyS|Dyalog on Tue Oct 11, 2011 2:16 pm

Currently it is not possible to )COPY or ⎕CY from either a session file or an extended workspace file.

One workaround, suggested by Geoff Streeter, is as follows:

In the source APL:

)save + tmpse

In the target APL:

      )copy ./tmpse se.object

Where se.object is each of the objects which you wish to copy in turn. It would probably be a good idea to generate that list in the original session and save as a variable which could be copied into the target session and used as a base for an automated set of ⎕CYs.

The "+" in )save + causes the interpreter to save a copy of the ⎕SE namespace along with the workspace in an extended workspace file.
