yield() function

yield() delivers input data as a result of the query.

A query may have multiple yields, each identified by unique name specified in the name parameter.

Note: yield() is implicit for queries that output a single stream of tables and is only necessary when yielding multiple results from a query.

Function type signature
(<-tables: stream[A], ?name: string) => stream[A] where A: Record
For more information, see Function type signatures.



Unique name for the yielded results. Default is _results.


Input data. Default is piped-forward data (<-).
