Is there a way to dynamically pass a comparison operator as a variable without a macro? I am looking to achieve something similar to what is shown below.
| eval number=8 | eval operator=">=" | eval comparison=7 | eval validate=if(number.operator.comparison,"yep","nope")
There are only ugly options, e.g. iterating through all operators with
map. What are you trying to achieve?
Hi Martin. I have a kvstore with rows that have a numerical field and an operator field (among others). I would like to loop through those rows and build a dynamic comparison based off of some search results.
In the example above, the field "number" is from an indexed search. The operator and comparison fields are in the kvstore. I would like to be able to dynamically compare the number/comparison fields based on the provided operator value.
The operators could be any standard operator (=,!=,>=, etc...)
Considering there only are six common comparison operators
= != < <= > >= I'd recommend creating a macro that houses a big case statement.
Thank you Martin. I was assuming this would be the answer but was hoping for something more concise. I appreciate the help.
