VERB - raw output

 

SYNOPSIS

<VERB [NOESC]>
  ... raw text to be output ...
</VERB>


DESCRIPTION
The verb element causes raw output without interpretation by Vortex. Any Vortex statements, directives, variables, etc. are ignored, including the usual stripping of leading whitespace, up to a closing </VERB> tag.

HTML-sensitive characters, such as <, and >, will be HTML-escaped on output, so raw HTML can be placed in the element. If the optional NOESC attribute is given, this HTML escapement is not done.


DIAGNOSTICS
VERB has no effect on $ret.


EXAMPLE

<VERB>
  This text is uninterpreted:
  <IF $x lt $y>
    yes
  </IF>
  <test>
</VERB>

produces the following output (note leading spaces):

  This text is uninterpreted:
  &lt;IF $x lt $y&gt;
    yes
  &lt;/IF&gt;
  &lt;test&gt;


CAVEATS
The VERB statement was added Aug. 28 1996.

Note that a VERB element does not imply an HTML <LISTING> tag, i.e. fixed-font, literal text interpretation by the Web browser. It only prevents interpretation by Vortex; a <LISTING> element must be explicitly given if desired.
