@wfind and asterisk

Postby nupogodi » Thu Jan 25, 2018 12:08 pm

It would be useful to add asterisk feature to word search function

@wfind("I didx it", "did*") should return 2

@wlookup function could be augmented by search capability of attributes. This similar to @wquery function

@wlookup("name matches GDP* and freq=Q", "name")

This syntax is not valid currently:

if @isobject({%n}_{%y}) = 1 then

nor is:

if @isobject(%n_%y) = 1 then

However, @isobject should allow variables names insertion in parenthesis.

Hello,

@isobject requires a string argument, but {%n}_{%y} is not a string (it's an identifier, i.e., a name). Instead, use the expression @isobject(%n + "_" + %y).
