Converts a serialized array back into the original array.Syntax:

arrayDecode(<encodedArray>)

Examples:

put arrayDecode(loadPreferencesData("displayOptions")) into sDisplayOptionsArray
read from socket tClient until linefeed
put urlDecode(arrayDecode(it)) into tClientDataArray

Use the arrayDecode function to rebuild an array from an encoded string produced by the arrayEncode function.

Encoding and decoding arrays is designed to allow arrays to be written to a file on disk, or sent across a network. See the arrayEncode reference for more information on doing this.

It is possible for two different strings to produce the same array. This is due to arrays having a different ordering of keys. To see if two encoded arrays are equal, first decode them back into the original array, then directly compare them using the = operator.

Parameters:

  • encodedArray (array): A binary string representing an array, as returned by the arrayEncodefunction.
  • Description:Use the arrayDecode function to rebuild an array from an encodedstring produced by the arrayEncode function.
