Finding Documentation for Available Services and Libraries

Questions around writing code and queries

Fri Dec 02, 2016 6:39 pm Change Time Zone

I've been looking at some of the libraries included with our HPCC installation and I find it amazing at what's available. Only trouble is, I cannot find any documentation on this stuff (what it does / how to use it...). I could have used some help with node() in lib_thorlib.thorlib or SprayVariable in lib_fileservices.fileservices. Where is the (or should I ask "Is there any") documentation on this stuff?

Installing the latest ECL IDE always gets you the latest help file (press F1 in any editor window) and that help file contains the latest ECL Language Reference, Programmer's Guide, and Service Library Reference.

The Service Library Reference documents most of the library functions. Any not already documented there have JavaDoc information in their respective code files (look under the "ecllibrary" folder in your Repository).

And, of course, all the latest documentation is always available for download here:
