APL Language Help file enhancements

Postby Ajay Askoolum » May 6th, 2019, 5:06 am

A. Please revise the examples cited for []FMT

- 2 sections, one for scalar arguments, one for 2-D array arguments
- in each section, include examples for formatting numbers in regional format i.e. thousand separators, negative numbers etc.
- likewise for formatting dates in regional format and ISO formats; should include a locale where comma (,) is not a thousand separator

B. The help text for []DEFL

- Should clarify that a function cannot modify lines within itself.
- Should clarify that a function that is suspended cannot be modified.
- Should clarify that a function can be renamed if using line [0]
- Should clarify that unless []tcnl is appended to a new line within a new control block, it will appear collapsed in the editor.

- OMISSION:Should enumerate all possible error codes and provide a description for each code.
