Subj:   Re: UDFs (aka 'is there a replace function in TD?'
From:   John Hall

Just to comment on Mirjam's suggestion: "Would it be feasible or even intersting to us (or some of us) to work together on UDFs and share them?" and "And I don't like the idea of each of us re-inventing the wheel"

And Dennis Calkins: "Teradata Forum has a repository for attachments, maybe you could encourage the List administrator to maintain a repository of UDF's."

I would be more than happy to create a UDF area on the TeradataForum website. It would be similar to the existing Attachment and Library sections, but oriented toward the sharing of UDF information, routines, trouble-shooting techniques and other experiences). The UDF area will be open to the public. Maybe it can be organized like an open-source project. Opinions/suggestions welcomed.

If anybody has something that they would like to share in the UDF area, I'll go ahead and give the creation of the area priority (I have a couple of other things to do first). If not, I'll create it a little bit later in the year. Even if you don't have something now, but think that you might soon, please let me know.

Personally, I don't think that a shared repository should influence third party developers any more than having public access to the NCR/Teradata manuals has stopped third parties from writing books.

Just because I'm sure people are waiting for the shoe to drop: If the UDF library from Professional Services is not for free, then I don't expect to hear it mentioned again - other than to discuss problems/implementation issues. The promotion/recommendation of products, services (et al) is prohibited on the TeradataForum - refer to the Welcome Letter.
