Lowers dynamic array delimiters to next level.
function returns a dynamic array with its delimiters converted to the next lower-level delimiters. For example, @VM value mark delimiters become @SM subvalue mark delimiters. When a delimiter cannot be lowered any further, it is returned unchanged. A dynarray
value that does not contain dynamic array delimiters is returned unchanged.
The available levels, in descending order, are: @IM (CHAR(255)); @FM (CHAR(254)); @VM (CHAR(253)); @SM (CHAR(252)); @TM (CHAR(251)); and CHAR(250).
function performs the opposite operation, raising the level of dynamic array delimiters to the next higher level.
The following example uses the LOWER
function to convert dynamic array delimiters to the next lower level. It then uses the RAISE
function to reverse this operation:
PRINT numvm; ! Returns 123ý456ý10ý11
numlower = LOWER(numvm)
PRINT numlower; ! Returns 123ü456ü10ü11
numraise = RAISE(numlower)
PRINT numraise; ! Returns 123ý456ý10ý11
