Description

The OBJECT() function is used to create an anonymous object. Properties are declared in a comma-separated list. Properties can be values only, <property value>, in which case they are given an automatically generated name: 00000001, 00000002 ... Property names can be specified using the <property name> => <property value> syntax. The OBJECT() function can also be included within the <property value> definition. The OBJECT() function returns an object.

Example

customer = object("custname" => "A Buyer Ltd.", ;
  "currentorder" => object("ord_id" => "00001", "ord_date" => date(),"ord_total" => 1599,;
  "orderitems" =>  object("10 reams A4 paper","500 business cards",;
                         "500 black ballpoint pens")))
