Query language
« on: July 19, 2020, 04:51:06 AM »
Planetdance Help gives an example of using isaspect in this way: 'isaspect(0, sun, moon, square, 5) = 1'. However, Query language does not find variable 'square' (nor 'conjunction' or 'opposition').

Conversely, it runs if in all caps as per AstroBasic help: 'isaspect(1, SUN, MOON, CONJUNCTION) = 0'. So this seems inconsistent with e.g. 'distance(sun,moon)<10'.

Thanks Kyle.I changed the helpfile for that example.


This is another example.
Code: [Select]

isdeclaspect(jupiterdec, saturndec, 3) = 1
and
isaspectx(jupiter, saturn, CONJUNCTION, 3) = 1

That explains why I couldn't get isaspect or isaspectx to work. Thanks for the update Jean!

Forgot to say, if you are curious, those queries generate scripts that do the work, they are here.
Code: [Select]
C:\Planetdance\time\query.ab
c:\planetdance\db\query.ab
