Raghav TulshibagwaleSubject: Get output line by line!!
Author: Raghav Tulshibagwale

Hello ...

I have a working query. It gives output one after the other. But I want it to be line by line. I tried things but it does not work. I also tried use of next line and carriage characters. Can anybody put some light on how to get output line after line...

For eg.

$person := doc("person.xml)/persons/per

for $x in $person
return $x/per_name

This gives output as follows
xyz abc pqr ....

But I desire to have output

If you were generating XML, that would be much easier (you would just indent the output specifying declare option ddtek:serialize "indent=yes"; at the beginning of the XQuery).

As you are generating raw text, you need to do that work yourself, adding new line characters where you need them:
return ($x/per_name, "

That will likely generate extra spaces at the beginning of each new line, which you won't like (but that's what the serialization specs for sequences demand); you can address that doing:
for $x in $person
return ($x/per_name, "
"), "")
