(datavalues: datamap) → array

This takes a datamap, and returns an array of its values, sorted alphabetically by their name.

Example usage:

(datavalues: (dm:'B',24, 'A',25)) produces the array (a: 25,24)


Sometimes, you may wish to examine the values stored in a datamap without referencing every name - for instance, determining if 0 is one of the values. (This can't be determined using the contains keyword, because that only checks the map's data names.) You can extract all of the datamap's values into an array to compare and analyse them using (datavalues:). The values will be sorted by their associated names.
