The package file provides the necessary functions to treat files from XSQL-Script. Files can be created, removed, edited, read them, stored in the database... The following table shows the most important functions, separateds by differents aspects as: Binary or Character functions. Functions which reference a file via an identifier or directly through an argument in which is passed the file. Functions to which you can indicate the character set and to which you cannot.

1 Xsql file

Character Binary
Functions which reference to the file with the attribute id [encoding]
file.writer.close file.out.close
file.writer.print file.out.print [encoding]
file.writer.println file.out.println [encoding]
file.writer.println file.out.println
file.writer.print.sql file.out.print.sql
Functions to which the file is passed as entry argument. [encoding]
file.chars.write [encoding-src,encoding-dst] file.bytes.write

Nota informativa

It is discouraged the use of the functions file.out, being preferable to use the funtions file.writer.

File mode
Type Privilege Name Location Description
temp     base application server $HOME/temp, a temporal file. It is the default option.
absolute     final application server filesystem, a file of absolute path.

Annex to the table 'File mode':

  • privileged: For security the interpreter who executes the program XSQL-Script does not let any directory of the file system be accessed. In the configuration database wic_conf the directories to which the XSQL-Script programs executed on a given server can access are determined.
    • yes_ The server allows the acces to the enabled directories (parametrized for each of the servers WebStudio in the configuration database wic_conf).
    • no: if the file is temporal is located in temporal directories of the file system.
  • location: location of a file.
    • final: The file is founded by the indicated name.
    • base: if the file is temporal, the final name of the file has a randomly generated part and the indicated name forms the base of the final name.
  • persistent: existence of the file.
    • yes: The file is persistent, it will exist after the ending of the program.
    • no: The existence of the file is limited to the execution time of the XSQL-Script. Once the program ends, it is removed.
