I am looking for something that seems simple in concept, but appears difficult in practice using Iguana — unless I’ve missed something completely, and it would be nice if that were the case. I have a need to take a message received in HL7 notation and convert it to XML. Just straight up, convert it so that
Is there a simpler way to do this than brute-forcing it by using :append to construct it as one long string?
OK, making process. The solution is dependent on the VMD for structure of the final XML file. What I’m seeing so far is that I can create a VMD that has a table (I’m using the MSH segment as a test) called MSH, and the column names are like “Field.1”, “Field.2”, and so forth. This is producing the following output:
All of this is happening in the VMD, though, and it’s not something I want to have to work out — I’d prefer to stick with Lua code in the translator. But if I do that, I have to manually build the segments using appends, is that correct?
