Note from author: this remains one of the most popular posts on this blog – so I have written an update.
A number of platforms in JMP allow for a variable number of columns. I want to take a look at how to handle this situation using the JMP scripting language.
A column of a JMP table acts as the primary source of data for most types of analysis within JMP. That is evident by the fact that the first task you perform when you launch a platform is to assign columns to roles:
A string variable is created by enclosing a text sequence within double quotes:
str = "this is a string";
If the string needs to contain special characters, including the double quote character itself, the special characters are prefixed with an escape sequence consisting of a backslash (\) following by an exclamation mark (!).
