Description

Compile a starlark code block - returns a module usable in VQL

Starl allows python like code to be used with VQL. This helps when we need some small functions with more complex needs. We can use a more powerful language to create small functions to transform certain fields etc.

Example

In the following example we define a Starl code block and compile it into a module. VQL code can then reference any functions defined within it directly.

LET MyCode <= starl(code='''
load("math.star", "math")

def Foo(X):
  return math.sin(X)

''')

SELECT MyCode.Foo(X=32)
FROM scope()
