Collation Algorithm

1995 Version of ANSI (Equivalent to Current ISO Version) of Standard

Right Hand Pointer

Collation Algorithm:

^$Global( gvnexpr , expr V "COLLATE" ) = expr V algoref

This node identifies the collation algorithm to be used when collation is required for a reference to this global. The collation value order for a subscript-string subscript, and a collation algorithm collate may be determined by executing the expression: ("S order="_collate_"(subscript)"). In all cases a collation algorithm must return a distinct order for each distinct subscript.

When the first node of a global global is created, and the collation algorithm node ^$Global("global","COLLATE") has a $Data value of zero, then the value of the current process' Character Set Profile collation algorithm ( $Get(^$Character(^$Job($Job,"CHARACTER"),"COLLATE")) ) is assigned as the global's collation algorithm ( ^$Global("global","COLLATE") ).
