Is there a workaround for the idiotic syntactic prohibition against
variables for subscripts in stored procedures? I need to parse a string
that I get back from a cursor, but am stymied because of this
limitation. My braindead approach would read the column into a
character-type variable, then loop through the string, evaluating each
index as required.
Alas. Does Informix eat its own dog food?
Any alternate solutions would be greatly appreciated.
