Helper for ObjectScript Language Extensions

If you create your own Language Extensions to Object you mostly have to find the
proper %ZLANGC00 or %ZLANGV00 or %ZLANGF00 and add the extensions manually.
A few utilities do it already automatically (ZPM, ZME, ..)
This utility allows you to add your extensions also programmatically.
(eg. at first run, or during installation) I found this quite useful for my Docker-based demos as it all happens at the start time.

This package includes demo example to visualize the operation of this utility.

Prerequisites

Make sure you have git and Docker desktop installed.

Installation

Clone/git pull the repo into any local directory

$ git clone https://github.com/rcemper/helper-for-objectscript-language-extensions.git

Open the terminal in this directory and run:

$ docker-compose build

Run the IRIS container with your project:

$ docker-compose up -d

How to Use it

 ; typ = "C" ... command extentson
 ;       "F" ... function extension
 ;       "V" ... variable Extensin
 ; ext = name of the extension
 ; code (by ref) numbered array of lines to add
 ;  
 ; do cmd^zLangExtender(typ,ext,.code)   ;>> add extension 

How to Test it

Open IRIS terminal:

$ docker-compose exec iris iris session iris
USER>ZN "%SYS"
%SYS>do ^zLangExample

Compiling routine : %ZLANGF00.mac

label="ZZDUMMY"
line=6
line(1)=" ; "
line(2)=" ; just a demo dummy"
line(3)="ZZDUMMY(%a) "
line(4)=" quit " I got '"%a"' for test""
line(5)=" ; what a nice demo "
line(6)=" ; "
sc=1
typ="F"
**** try ****
sc=" I got 'hi folks' for test"

result:
;Generated by %ZPM.PackageManager: Start
ZPM(pArgs...) Quit ##class(%ZPM.PackageManager).Shell(pArgs...)
;Generated by %ZPM.PackageManager: End
;
; just a demo dummy
ZZDUMMY(%a)
quit " I got '"%a"' for test"
; what a nice demo
;
%SYS>

And if you run it a second time ?
It returns a standard error %Status.

%SYS>do ^zLangExample
%objlasterror="0 ...ZZDUMMY^%ZLANGF00 already defined.........
label="ZZDUMMY"
line=6
line(1)=" ; "
line(2)=" ; just a demo dummy"
line(3)="ZZDUMMY(%a) "
line(4)=" quit " I got '"_%a_"' for test""
line(5)=" ; what a nice demo "
line(6)=" ; "
sc=""0 ...ZZDUMMY^%ZLANGF00 already defined.........
typ="F"
ERROR #5001: ZZDUMMY^%ZLANGF00 already defined
