Re: [ferret_users] records

At present none of the above queried feature Ferret supports, in future it may come :), we encourage contributions from users, and you can also become part of development team.

Hi all,

Is it possible to define data structures that are more complex than
scalars and arrays?  I am talking about records [1], so e.g.

    let A.x = "some name"
    let A.y = 10
    let A.z = 3.14

Ultimately I'd like to define an array consisting of records:

    let B.x = {"first name", "second name", "third name"}
    let B.y = {1, 2, 3}
    let B.z = {0.1, 0.2, 0.3}

or the other way around starting with records and putting them in an

    let C = { A, A2, ... }

Note that none of the above command don't work in Ferret, but I hope it
is clear what I would like to do :-)
