Saxon's adaptive serialization of an anonymous functions

Added by Martin Honnen over 1 year ago

With SaxonCS and SaxonJ, the adpative serialization of e.g. random-number-generator() gives e.g. map{"next":Q{anon}anon#0,"number":4.541541260138987e-1,"permute":Q{anon}anon#1}.

Someone on Twitter thinks the Q{anon} is suspicious or giving the wrong context these days. Might be more of a joke.

Is there a way to get SaxonCS and/or Java to output something clearer/cleaner like BaseX (anonymous-function)#0 or SaxonJS (anonymous function)#0 do?

It seems this designation is used only for system-created anonymous functions (specifically, instances of CallableFunction); for user-created functions such as

function(){3}

the representation is (anonymous-function)#0

Yes, right, I kind of inferred from that sample that the format is generally used for anonymous functions but later found that SaxonJS/SaxonCS do use (anonymous-function) for user created functions. So the impact is much smaller than I initially thought.

I shall change it to use NamespaceConstant.ANONYMOUS in 12.x.
