Updates in V2.6.1.1

  • Created a seamless interface to the standard gnuplot engine for scientific plotting and business charting.
  • Implemented the new PLOT and PLOTDATA tags and associated IDE editors for the gnuplot interface. The PLOTDATA tag allows plotting datasets to be easily created from recordset data in a single tag.
  • Implemented the new FOREACH tag, which makes it much easier to quickly iterate recordsets.
  • Enhanced the FILE tag for the "New" action. Added a "temp" attribute to the FILE tag to automatically discard any temporary files created during document processing.
  • Enhanced the "format" function to easily allow a string to be constructed given positional parameters and literal text from a single invocation.
  • Added a "temp" function that returns a temporary file path name, a temporary simple file name, or the temporary directory of the machine.
  • Added a "mode" function that returns the document creation operation currently being performed.
  • Deprecated the HTML and HTMLELSE tags, which were replaced by the more flexible "mode" function.
