Difference between []New and .New

Writing and using Classes in Dyalog APL

Difference between []New and .New

Postby RobertB on Thu Nov 22, 2012 3:36 pm

Hello,

we are using Dyalog 12.0 in our Web-Applications.
Is there a difference in creating an object with []New and .New?
Both is working.

Example:
DateTime.New 2012 11 22
[]New DateTime 2012 11 22

Regards
Robert

Hi Robert,

We recommend using the ⎕new way.

In the end, they are the same but there is potential for a clash if the class already had it's own New method.

Regards,
