⎕SI - State Indicator

⎕SI is a niladic system function which returns a character matrix of the functions and their line numbers currently being executed. Consider the following functions:

    ∇ test1
[1]   'Inside test1'
[2]   'SI=' ⎕SI
[3]   
[4]   +
    ∇

    ∇ test2
[1]   'Inside test2, calling test1'
[2]   'SI=' ⎕SI
[3]   test1
    ∇

Calling test1 produces the following output:

      test1
Inside test1
 SI=  test1[2]   
SYNTAX ERROR
test1[4] +
         ∧
      ⎕SI
test1[4] *

In this example, ⎕SI is displayed on test1[2], after which the function is suspended on test1[4] as indicated by the trailing asterisk.

Calling test2 with test1 still suspended produces the following output:

      test2
Inside test2, calling test1
 SI=  test2[2]   
      test1[4] * 
Inside test1
 SI=  test1[2]   
      test2[3]   
      test1[4] * 
SYNTAX ERROR
test1[4] +
         ∧
      ⎕SI
test1[4] *
test2[3]  
test1[4] *

In this example, ⎕SI is displayed on test2[2], and test1 is called on test2[3]. In turn, test1 calls ⎕SI on test1[2] and suspends on test1[4], all of which is reflected in the output of ⎕SI at each level.

Special Rows In ⎕SI

Note that a row in the result of ⎕SI might represent Quad input, the Execute function, and/or a Magic Function. These rows are identified by a leading , , and #, respectively. After these rows are removed from ⎕SI, the remaining rows match up one-to-one with the elements of ⎕LC.


Note: SI is a niladic form system function, you cannot assign a value to it.
