[xquery-talk] xquery 3.1 wishlist

Dear all,
Thanks Wouter for initiating this discussion.

I’d like to add another feature request to the current implementation of
the language : the ability to retrieve the current function being executed.
I could not find a work-around for implementing this, and - now with
functions being first-class citizens of the language - felt the need for
this capability in some edge cases.

Something like :

declare function local:test($arg) {
  let $function := function-item() (: would return local:test#1 as
function item :)
  return ()

Thanks and best regards,
Christophe Geiser


I’ve been working with the recent xquery 3.1 implementation in the develop
branch eXist-db. I encountered some cases that were quite hard to work

   - the lack of array:index-of() - the lack of the iterator index in
   arrayfor-each and related higher-order functions
   Perhaps someone of the workgroup is available to discuss those
cases. Thanks,

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to
accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.
