Subject Re: How to use string functions from ruta-core-ext in Ruta
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2015 08:23:38 GMT

it should work just fine (tested with current trunk).

The substring function like the other string functions just delegate to
the java methods. Thus,  the substring from 0 to 8 returns "Alexande".
The example should work with : CW{-> MATCHEDTEXT(s), ADD(sl,

4.4.2. I've set up a new Ruta project with a script containing the (slightly modified) code
from the substring example:
> DECLARE Test; // I've added this line to make the example work.
> CW{-> MATCHEDTEXT(s), ADD(sl, substring(s,0,8))};
> CW{INLIST(sl) -> Test}; // Changed SW to CW to make the rule work.

was that the first rule finds "Alexanderplatz" and stores the  first nine letters of it in
the string list sl so that the last line can annotate "Alexander" with "Test". In reality,
however, nothing happens. I get no error message, but after execution, there is no "Test"
