The Good Stuff

This part covers many distinctive features of ObjectScript.

In Part 2, you'll learn about the features that make ObjectScript really interesting and powerful:

  • Almost everything is a string, even when it's a number or a list.

  • The pattern match operator and $Match for regular expressions.

  • A lot of functions for strings, lists, and bitstrings.

  • How to work with dates.

  • How to work with JSON.

  • Arrays, ordered trees, globals, $Increment, and $Sequence.

  • How to test whether variables and global nodes exist using $Data.

  • How easy it is to create a database and indexes.
