scan [ .. desc], process option
desc keyword is an option for a process call. When
desc is present, the ordering of the iteration is inverted.
def process continuedFraction(a: number) with keep frac = 1 frac = a + 1 / frac return frac table T = extend.range(20) T.Frac = continuedFraction(T.N) scan [T.N desc] show table "Series" a1b10 with T.N, T.Frac order by T.N
scan takes a tuple, the
desc option can be indepently applied to every element of the tuple, i.e.
scan [a desc, b, c desc].
order by .. desc, tile option
desc keyword is an option for a table tile block. When
desc is present, the ordering of the table is inverted.
table T = with [| "a" as X, 3 as Y|] [| "b", 2 |] [| "c", 1 |] show table "T" a1b3 with T.X, T.Y order by T.Y desc
order by takes a tuple as argument, the
desc keyword remains outside the tuple:
order by [a, b, c] desc. As a tile option, the keyword
desc does not offer an ordering control over each element that makes the tuple.
