GetQuotedText()

This is an inbuilt function function provided by PPWIZARD.

Most ppwizard commands take "quoted parameters". This rexx function allows you to make use of this code.

The function takes these parameters:

  1. The string which is expected to contain the quoted value.

  2. A string containing the name of a variable which is to contain the "rest" of the string from the first parameter. If this parameter is not passed then the whole of the first parameter must have contained the quoted value or the function aborts.

  3. Pass "" if required. I will document later.

  4. An optional value which indicates what you are "doing", displayed in error messages.

The function returns the quoted string (without quotes) or dies.

Example

;--- We expect EXACTLY 3 parameters ---
@@P1 = GetQuotedText(substr(@@Line,2), "Rest");
@@P2 = GetQuotedText(Rest, "Rest");
@@P3 = GetQuotedText(Rest);
