@wlookup
Syntax: @wlookup(pattern_list[, object_type_list])
Argument 1: pattern string list, pattern_list
Argument 2: object type string list, object_type_list
Return: string list
Returns a string list of all objects in the workfile or database that satisfy the pattern_list and, optionally, the object_type_list. The pattern_list may be made up of any number of “?” (indicates any single character) or “*” (indicates any number of characters). The pattern must exactly match the object name in the workfile or database.
Example:
If a workfile contains three graph objects named “GR1”, “GR2”, and “GR01” and two series objects named “SR1” and “SER2”, then
@wlookup("GR*")
returns the string list “GR1 GR2 GR01”. All objects beginning with “GR” and followed by any number of characters are included. Alternately,
@wlookup("?R*")
returns the string list “GR1 GR2 GR01 SR1”. SER2 is not included because “?” specifies a single character preceding an “R”.
@wlookup("?R?","series")
returns the string “SR1”. The object type “series” drops all graph objects from the list, and “?R?” filters out SER2 because “?” specifies a single character.
