Multiple Assignment

Multiple assignment takes the form ' string ' =: value (or ' string ' =. value ).

The string is broken into words, each of which must be a valid name. The names may be a mixture of locatives and non-locatives. Each item of the value is assigned to the corresponding name, with one level of boxing removed .

If there is only one name in the string , the value is not unboxed.

Having the values boxed allows you to assign dissimilar values in one assignment. You can link a number of values using val0 ; val1 ; val2... and then assign them to individual names.

The number of items of value must equal the number of names, unless value is an atom, in which case it is replicated to match the number of names.

Note: This works also

It works because "removing a level of boxing" from an unboxed list is a valid thing to do (it's a no-op ).

If you want to assign the entire list  3 4 to both a and b , then make the list into an atom by boxing it

AR Assignment

AR assignment is a variant of multiple assignment, activated when the first character of string is the back-quote ` . The items of value must be atomic representations (ARs), and each AR is converted to a value before being assigned to the corresponding name.

The easiest way to produce an AR is with Tie u`v which produces the ARs of verbs u and v .

AR assignment is most often used to assign multiple names with verb values:

Indirect Assignment

Indirect assignment takes the form ( nameexpr ) =: value . The nameexpr , when evaluated, must produce either a list of boxed names or a string suitable as the string in multiple or AR assignment. The items of value are assigned to the names as in multiple assignment.

ASSIGN is a DCL command that creates a logical name and assigns an equivalence string, or a list of strings, to the specified logical name . If you specify an existing logical name, the new equivalence name replaces the existing equivalence name. For descriptions of ASSIGN/MERGE and ASSIGN/QUEUE , see the respective pages.


The only difference between the DEFINE and ASSIGN commands is the sequence of parameter: the first parameter to the DEFINE command is the logical name and the second one is the equivalence string.
