Example

show ns assignment

add ns assignment

Creates an assignment of a value to a variable. The variable (the left hand side) may be a singleton variable or a map with a key expression. The value (the right hand side) is computed from an expression and may be used to set the variable or may be added to or subtracted from the current value of a ulong variable or appended to a text variable. The key expression, if present, is evaluated before the value expression. The left hand side variable value may also be cleared, in which case there is no value expression.

variable Left hand side of the assigment, of the form $variable-name (for a singleton variabled) or $variable-name[key-expression], where key-expression is an expression that evaluates to a text string and provides the key to select a map entry

set Right hand side of the assignment. The expression is evaluated and assigned to the left hand variable.

add Right hand side of the assignment. The expression is evaluated and added to the left hand variable.

sub Right hand side of the assignment. The expression is evaluated and subtracted from the left hand variable.
