Chapter 2. System Functions


In SIMPOL system functions are functions that begin with the exclamation point (!) operator and take a variable number of potentially named parameters. They begin with an exclamation point for the same reasons as intrinsic functions begin with a dot; in order to ensure that no user-defined function could be named the same so as to allow for future expansion in this area without fear of colliding with existing user-defined function names.
