This part introduces Caché Basic, which is similar to VBScript. We assume that you already know Visual Basic or VBScript, so there are no descriptions of the standard commands and functions.

In Part 1, you'll learn about the features that make Caché Basic really interesting and powerful:

  • A lot of functions for multi-valued strings.

  • How to use the Studio debugger.

  • Arrays, ordered trees, globals. How to test whether variables exist.

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