9.104 GET_PROCESS_INFO

Note: Built-In Function Rules     Usage Options

Retrieves a list of process related information from the LANSA internal database and returns it to the calling RDML function in a variable length, working list.

Special Note: This Built-In Function provides access to very advanced facilities that basically allow RDML functions to construct new RDML functions.

This is a very specialized area that requires very good knowledge of the LANSA product. Use of this Built-In Function in a "commercial" application (e.g. Order Entry) is not normal and should not be attempted.

This is a Specialized Built-In Function for use in a Development Environment only.
