don't want to have to use VALUE EACH ... can QiPad help?

Postby ben.cotton@citi.com » Mon Feb 14, 2011 10:03 pm

Hi,

In order to execute the following 2 'q' statements as a batch from an IDE, we have to wrap them in the VALUE EACH expression container. We can't just select-highlight both statements under the cursor and hit CTRL-E. We hate this.

Of course, If we ran the same 2 'q' statements from a file that is passed as an argument to a 'q' command line execution, it works as we would hope.

Can the QiPad IDE liberate us from having to wrap these statements in VALUE EACH in order to execute as an IDE-executed batch (CTRL-E)?

Also, can QiPad liberarte us from the arbitrary restriction that 'q' statements written on multiple lines must only contain a charactrer in COL=1 on the first line?

Just a few very simple things we would love an IDE to make easier.

Thanks,
Ben
