Associative arrays in Neobook

Hello. Associative arrays, that use 'named keys' (also called 'named indexes'), can not be made with some Neobook function. However, they can be created with a small trick. I like this strategy in order to make code more readable (and sometimes shorter). Just for fun, I made a short text on this top...

Re: hpwRuby

Hello, There are many tutorials etc. on Ruby. I'll recommend -in addition to my last post on this topic- two online resources (a few functions will not work with DLL1.8 of HPW's Neobook plugin, but alternatives can be found easily on the web): 1. http://www.java2s.com/Code/Ruby/CatalogRuby.htm (very...

Math expressions in control commands

Hello, You probably know the use of math expressions in Neobook's SetVar: SetVar "[z]" "10" SetVar "[z]" "[z]+1" However, math expressions can used in e.g. the control commands If, IfEx, While, WhileEx and Loop also, resulting in shorter code. I did not find a...

Converting XLS to SQL via CSV

Hello, Last week I had to put more than 270 EXCEL spreadsheets into SQL data records. All the XLS files had the same number of rows, corresponding to a fixed format, but the number of the columns could be different -random within a range 2-11. The first step was converting XLS to comma-separated val...

Short hands in Neobook

mcGawk: Awk functionality in Neobook

Hello, A few weeks ago, I found an antiquarian book on Awk. In the late 1970s and 1980s, Awk was a popular language on text processing (especially CSV files). However, I found that Awk is anno 2014 alive: tutorials on Awk are still published. Learning Awk appeared to be quite easy. And I can tell yo...
