adams.flow.transformer.ReportMathExpression


Synopsis

Evaluates a mathematical expression based on report values.
Either outputs the updated report or the report handler if that allows updating the report. The calculated value can be output by itself, if the 'outputResult' property is enabled.
Variables are supported as well, e.g.: pow(X,@{exp}) with '@{exp}' being a variable available at execution time.

The following grammar is used for the expressions:

expr_list ::= '=' expr_list expr_part | expr_part ;
expr_part ::= expr ;

expr ::= ( expr )

              ;

Notes:
- Variables are either all alphanumeric and _, starting with uppercase letter (e.g., "ABc_12"),
  any character apart from "]" enclosed by "[" and "]" (e.g., "[Hello World]") or
  enclosed by single quotes (e.g., "'Hello World'").
- 'start' and 'end' for function 'substr' are indices that start at 1.
- Index 'end' for function 'substr' is excluded (like Java's 'String.substring(int,int)' method)
- Line comments start with '#'.
- Semi-colons (';') or commas (',') can be used as separator in the formulas,
  e.g., 'pow(2,2)' is equivalent to 'pow(2;2)'
- dates have to be of format 'yyyy-MM-dd' or 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss'
- times have to be of format 'HH:mm:ss' or 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss'
- the characters in square brackets in function names are optional:
  e.g. 'len("abc")' is the same as 'length("abc")'
- 'str' uses java.text.DecimalFormat when supplying a format string

A lot of the functions have been modeled after LibreOffice:

Additional functions:
- env(String): String
First argument is the name of the environment variable to retrieve.
The result is the value of the environment variable.

Additional procedures:
- println(...)
One or more arguments are printed as comma-separated list to stdout.
If no argument is provided, a simple line feed is output.
