The dumpdictionary statement returns a carriage return separated array of dictionary keys and values (see Data Dictionaries).
This statement has two parameters:
dictionary – name of the field or variable that contains the dictionary (must contain binary data).
dump – field or variable designated to receive the dumped dictionary.
The dumpdictionary statement returns a carriage return separated array of dictionary keys and values. Each line contains a key/value pair.
For example, this formula builds a dictionary and then dumps it.
local specifications,specDump specifications=initializedictionary("Color","Blue","Shape","Oval","Depth",3) dumpdictionary specifications,specDump
At the end of this procedure, the specDump variable will contain:
Color=Blue Shape=Oval Depth=3
This same feature is available as a function for use in formulas, see dumpdictionary(.
