[ic] Recursive Perl Function?
Thu, 29 Mar 2001 19:03:28 +0800
We would like to add a simple Bulletin Board system to one of our systems.
The simple solution is to add a function which display a line from the
BBtable, calls itself to see if there are any "children" which in turn calls
itself and so on.
Fairly simple to do in Visual Basic my programming language of choice until
recently, but far more difficult in Interchange. I experimented with a
UserTag, but then the UserTag would need to call itself using an Interchange
Using a simple [loop search...] and a nested [loop prefix search...] I can
get a simple 2 level one going, and presumably I could nest in a third and
fourth level but this seems very inefficient and I must limit the level of
It cant be too different from nesting categories and products with multiple
levels of categorisation, which I have done in a drill-down type approach,
but this time I want to show the results in a single table on a single
eg Message 1 Sender
Message 1 response Sender
Next threaded response Sender
Message 1 another response
and so on.
Any ideas on a different/better way to do this.
