1.4 The Q Console

The q console evaluates a q expression that you enter and echoes the result on the following line. An exception to this is the assignment operation—as noted above—that has a return value, even though the console does not echo it. You may wonder why. This is simply a q console design choice to avoid cluttering the display.
