The simplest case is running some code and getting a result. Note here:
- Each line of code which would produce output at a console produces output in the notebook.
- stderr/stdout are printed separately to the output in the usual way for notebooks. Note that if your print statement, such as
-1"hello world!", has an output (here
-1) then the output will be displayed. You can suppress this with a semicolon at the end of a statement as usual.
- Execution is script-like, i.e. you can use the normal rules of indentation for functions, if/while blocks, and select/update/delete statements.
System commands can be used with the
\ escape character at the start of a line in a code cell.
\d does not currently work.
