Subj:   Re: Debugging a procedure
 
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

  What surprises me slightly is that the External Function is not supplied as a standard Function within the V12 Database ... or is it, and I've just not understood  


As you probably recall, Dave, when stored procedures were first introduced they had very few features. There wasn't even a separate statement to open a cursor. They also included a PRINT statement (for debugging?) that printed to a Database Window and was thus useless for the ordinary developer. Maybe Teradata wanted to see if anyone would actually use SP's before they started adding a bunch of features, and debugging was low on the priority list. Just a guess!
