Examples

The following query executes an array of independent repeat operations and returns the results in an array. The result array position matches the execution array position. The individual operations are:

  1. The string Yes is concatenated with itself. The result string YesYes is placed in the top position of the result array.

  2. The string Yes! , containing a trailing space, is repeated 3 times. The result string Yes! Yes! Yes! is placed in the second position of the result array.

  3. The string = is repeated 10 times. The result string ========== is placed in the third position of the result array.

client.query(
  [
    q.Repeat('Yes'),
    q.Repeat('Yes! ', 3),
    q.Repeat('=', 10),
  ]
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error(
  'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
  err.name,
  err.message,
  err.errors()[0].description,
))
[ 'YesYes', 'Yes! Yes! Yes! ', '==========' ]
result = client.query(
  [
    q.repeat("Yes"),
    q.repeat("Yes! ", 3),
    q.repeat("=", 10),
  ]
)

result, err := client.Query(
	f.Arr{
		f.Repeat("Yes"),
		f.Repeat("Yes! ", f.Number(3)),
		f.Repeat("=", f.Number(10)),
	})

if err != nil {
	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
	fmt.Println(result)
}

        )
    );
