thank you!
I'll control soon.
However, please, see my ANOVA program (here)
If I use the function ANOVA_list() (that need values in D1, D2, D3 of Statistic 1var) without parameters, in CAS I get "Error: Bad argument value", in Home I get "Error: Syntax error", but with something like ANOVA_list(0.01) the program seems to work...
I've in the code some controls like:
Code:
 local spar; spar:= SIZE(a); IF (TYPE(spar)==6 OR TYPE(a)<>0) THEN RETURN("Usage: ANOVA_list(a) a=significance level; data in Stat 1var");  END; IF ((spar==0)) THEN RETURN("Usage: ANOVA_list(a) a=significance level; data in Stat 1var"); END; IF (a <=0 OR a>= 1) THEN RETURN("Significance level must be > 0 AND <1"); END; IF ((size(D1) == 0) OR (size(D1) == 0) OR (size(D3) = 0)) THEN RETURN("Statistics 1var, D1 means, D2 stddev, D3 numerosity"); END;
I would like to give a message when the user input ANOVA_list() without parameter... and also when it gives wrong parameter (but this seems to work).

But the line
Code:
 IF ((spar==0)) THEN RETURN("Usage: ANOVA_list(a) a=significance level; data in Stat 1var"); END;

in this non CAS program perhaps does nothing and it doesn't intercept the error: with input ANOVA_list() without a number the program give the error and not the message...

You need to use CASE and not separate IF statements. Suppose a is not a number object. Without using CASE, then your program will reach the third IF statement. However, the check IF (a<=0 OR a>=1) would not make sense and this is the cause of your error, since the <= and >= operators may not properly return the correct result to be used by the OR command. For example, try:

{1,2} >= {0,5} and you will see {1,0}

{1,0} OR {0,0} and the result is {1,0}

However, an IF statement does not know what to do with a list -- IF ({1,0}) makes no sense. To avoid this, you need to use CASE blocks surrounding your IF statements so that a list input in captured by only one IF statement and then program control is passed to the point beyond the end of the CASE block (i.e. skips all other IF tests).

I should control that a value is from 0 (excluded) and 1 (excluded): (0..1)

CASE. Do you mean like so?
Code:
 CASE IF (TYPE(spar)==6 OR TYPE(a)<>0) THEN RETURN("Usage: ANOVA_list(a) a=significance level; data in Stat 1var");  END; IF ((spar==0)) THEN RETURN("Usage: ANOVA_list(a) a=significance level; data in Stat 1var"); END; IF (a <=0 OR a>= 1) THEN RETURN("Significance level must be > 0 AND <1"); END; IF ((size(D1) == 0) OR (size(D1) == 0) OR (size(D3) = 0)) THEN RETURN("Statistics 1var, D1 means, D2 stddev, D3 numerosity"); END; END; // case

A priority list should be: control if value "a" is given, then if D1, D2 and D3 are set, than if a is from 0 to 1 (non include the limits), then if a is a number and only a number...

thanks!

That doesn't make sense. How can you check if a is from 0 to 1 without first checking to see that a is in fact a number? I didn't read much into your code, except to look for how control flow was giving you errors.

in fact I'm trying doing that: control if "a" is a number, but first if it was given (and this only doesn't works):

new code:
Code:
 BEGIN local spar; spar:= SIZE(a); CASE IF ((spar==0)) THEN RETURN("Usage: ..."); END IF (TYPE(spar)==6 OR TYPE(a)<>0) THEN RETURN("Usage: ...");  END // control to avoid lists {} and []... IF (a <=0 OR a>= 1) THEN RETURN("Significance level must be > 0 AND <1"); END // control for interval IF ((size(D1) == 0) OR (size(D1) == 0) OR (size(D3) = 0)) THEN RETURN("Statistics 1var, D1 ..."); END DEFAULT END; // case

only the IF spar==0 doesn't control for no input, IMHO...

RE: Type control
Han,
so it goes better:

Code:
 EXPORT ANOVA(a) ... BEGIN CASE IF (SIZE(a)==0) THEN a:=0.05; END; IF (TYPE(a)<>0) THEN ANOVA_help(); RETURN("Usage: ANOVA(a)");  END; IF (a <=0 OR a>= 1) THEN RETURN("Significance level must be > 0 AND <1"); END; DEFAULT END; // case ...

I control that "a" be a number (or give the user a function with help), and if it's a number that its value be in the interval.
But SIZE(a)==0 still doesn't work.
I thought to make "a" parameter option, but I don't remember if it's possible in EXPORT myfunction()... or not.
i.e. EXPORT ANOVA(a:=0.05) doesn't work.

Salvo

It appears I misunderstood you, then. If you want to have a sequence of control flow in which you add more conditions that must be met, then you need to nest your if statements:

Code:
IF (TYPE(a)<>0) THEN     ANOVA_help(); RETURN("Usage: ANOVA(a)");  ELSE     IF (a <=0 OR a>= 1) THEN       RETURN("Significance level must be > 0 AND <1");     ELSE     ... (rest of your code here)     END; END;

There's no point to checking the size of 'a' since multiple arguments in Home view would produce an argument count error (no list behavior like in CAS view) as your program only specifies one argument (which must be given in order for the program to even run).

Non-CAS programs cannot be "overloaded" to handle both cases in which an argument is passed, or when no arguments are passed. You have to specify one or the other. This is why the SIZE(a)==0 check is redundant. Just to be clear, this is regarding the behavior of a non-CAS program.

I'll try your solution in the afternoon, thanks

In fact, my problem was here: I would to "overload" and to handle (as I do in CAS programs) is a parameter is passed, and (if yes) whether it's only one, it's a number and so on...
Ok, if there is no solution, my controls (with your advice) will be "better than nothing"

EDIT: a trick could be give the parameter a default value, but...
