  • Enhanced functional operand positions:
As well as functional methods, all predefined functions that have exactly one unnamed argument can be specified in the following read positions (if nothing to the contrary is documented):
  • Functional operand positions in assignments:
  • Function Operand Positions in String Processing and Byte String Processing
  • Character-like or byte-like arguments of the predefined functions
