Highlights: The IIUG board of Directors is meeting in Vancouver on June 7-9
Welcome to the International Informix Users Group (IIUG) Insider! Designed for IIUG members and Informix user group leaders, this publication contains timely and relevant information for the IBM Informix community.
Editing the Insider is mainly searching for content. This month I was not successful.
You may think that a short Insider is less work. It is not. It just means that begging, nagging and searching the web did not get me much. We have a great product. There is fascinating stuff going on. But if no one writes about it nobody will know. So once more I'm asking you all send me content. It is not much work and it will benefit us all.

Informix SPL supports the CASE statement
The CASE statement within SPL is a long overdue request for many Informix users. Finally this wish fulfilled in Informix release 12.10. Now you can use the CASE statement within SPL routines as a faster alternative to IF...ELSE...END IF statements to define a set of conditional logical branches. The syntax for the CASE statement is:
You can use the CASE statement to create a set of conditional branches. The WHEN and the ELSE clauses are optional, but you must include at least one of them.
Here is an example that demonstrates how to use the case statement within SPL. In this example, the CASE statement validates a variable named .user' and reassign the value of same variable. It also includes a test for NULL value.
This enhancement in the SPL code really is helpful for migrate databases from Informix XPS and other database servers to Informix server. For more information please check the Informix Information Center.
