+2 ⎕NQ '.' 'GetEnvironment' '?'

Postby Kristoffer|Dyalog on Thu Mar 03, 2011 1:25 pm

I know these:

+2 ⎕NQ '.' 'GetEnvironment' 'Dyalog'
+2 ⎕NQ '.' 'GetEnvironment' 'session_file'

How do I find out which colorscheme has been chosen by the user?
Where can I find out what information I can get from +2 ⎕NQ '.' 'GetEnvironment' '?' -Is there a List?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Kristoffer,

There is a list of Dyalog environment parameters in Chapter 1 of the User Guide. On MS Windows, you can set these parameters in the command line, environment, or the Windows Registry.

You could get the name of the current colour scheme for the editor with:
+2 ⎕nq '.' 'getenvironment' 'Colours\SchemeName'

In this example, our GetEnvironment method looks in the Windows Registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Dyalog\Dyalog APL/W 12.1 Unicode\Colours" for the string value SchemeName.
