  General Programming

1. Does SteelArrow support XML?
2. When do I quote?
Usage of quotes in SteelArrow is reserved for literal strings.  SteelArrow does support smart quoting (similar to JavaScript).  With smart quoting, a literal string can start with a single quote, and then contain double quotes.

<SASET NAME=sQuote VALUE='This is a "test"'>
or
<SASET NAME=sQuote VALUE="This is a 'test'">

In both cases, the quotes wrap the literal text they contain including the quote characters.  As a simple example, the following is an example of a simple literal string;

<SASET NAME=var VALUE="Hello World">

Normally variables that are created are never wrapped in quotes within a SteelArrow markup tag.  So to reassign the 'var' value to another variable the following can be done.

<!--- Good --->
<SASET NAME=var2 VALUE=var>

The value of var2 in this case will be the value of 'var' or "Hello World".

<!--- Bad --->
<SASET NAME=var2 VALUE="var">

The value of var2 in this case will be the literal string "var".

Applying this to the SAQUERY tag, we end up with;

<SAQUERY NAME=dbQ DATASOURCE="DSNname">

Notice that the variable is not quoted, but the DSN name is (since it is a lieral string).  Of course, we could have done the following as well;

<SASET NAME=dsn VALUE="DSNname">
<SAQUERY NAME=dbQ DATASOURCE=dsn>
