Template Question Regarding Global Includes

Good Day Everyone!

Question about Templates

I know how to add an Include file in %AfterGlobalIncludes.

However, how can I check if an Include file is already “included?”

Thank you!

Hi Don,
in #AT(%BeforeGenerateApplication) using this logic


The templates will handle only generating the INCLUDE statement once for you.

Actually, looking at the ABC templates it does not do anything to check if the file is already in the list. I was always under the impression that it did.

This is incorrect. See posts below.

Hi Rick,

Isn’t %GlobalIncludeList multivalued and UNIQUE and both Clarion and ABC have code like this…


Oops, you’re right it is UNIQUE. Clearly I should pay more attention before I post.
I thought it took care of it. I was right but then 2nd guessed myself, oh well.
Thanks, Graham.
