print statement

Does db2 have the equivalent of a print statement like SQL server? I
wanted to debug a stored procedure I wrote and wanted to output some of
the values. I couldn't find it in documentation.. .The only thing that
looked close was signal statement.

No. But you can use Development Center (or Developer Workbench) and
actually debug the stored procedure, which is light years ahead of
using print statements to try and debug.

No. But you can use Development Center (or Developer Workbench) and

using print statements to try and debug.
For reporting (or if you just are in love with print statements you can
use a DECLARE GLOBAL TEMPORARY TABLE ... NOT LOGGED .. ON ROLLBACK
PRESERVE ROWS
and dump your stuff into that.
Then at the end of your stored proc simply open a CURSOR WITH RETURN TO
CLIENT on the temp table. command line will display it.

Thanks ahead for your help I'm trying to learn what I can do with echo and print statements. I figured out the echo statement and below is the simple version using print. I've tried two dozen or more single print statements, first start with the first part then adding additional phrases, then looking at the page source code, but I'm missing something simple,(isn't that always the way) What I'm trying to understand is how, if it's...

Why can't we have an additional 'print' statement, that behaves exactly like 'print' but doesn't insert that damn blank between two arguments? Could be called 'printn' or 'prin1' or 'prinn' anything similar you like. Would make my life so much easier. Often I start with a nice and short print statement, then there happen to be more arguments and neat formatting becomes more important and as a result I find myself

I recently ran into the issue with 'print' were, as it says on the web page called "Python Gotchas" (http://www.ferg.org/projects/python_gotchas.html): The Python Language Reference Manual says, about the print statement, A "\n" character is written at the end, unless the print statement ends with a comma. What it doesn't say is that if the print statement does end with a

The pros and cons of making 'print' a function in Python 3.x are well discussed at: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2005-September/056154.html Alas, it appears that the effect of this pep would be to make it impossible to use the name 'print' in a backward compatible manner. Indeed, if a program is to compile in both Python 2.x and Python 3.x, the print function (or the print statement with parentheses) can not use the...

print and softspace in python In python, whenever you use >>>print statement it will append a newline by default. If you don't want newline to be appended, you got use a comma at the end (>>>print 10,) When, you have a list of characters and want them to be printed together a string using a for loop, there was observation that no matter what there was space coming between the characters. No split or join methods helped. print e, a b c

Am I the only one that thinks this would be useful? :) I'd really like to be able to use python 3.0's print statement in 2.x. Is this at least being considered as an option for 2.6? It seems like it would be helpful with transitioning.

Hi, your friendly neighborhood n00b here, just wondering why on earth the Py3K folks want to mess with a simple thing like the "print" "command" (is that what it's called, a command?), turning it into "print()"...I mean, what's the point, exactly?? To look like a more "traditional" computer-language format? And what's with not supporting the so-called softspace "feature" of the current "print" command, where a space after a comma, like

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
