Creating an Icon record object
Once you have defined the fields that go into a given record type (see `Declaring an Icon record type'), you can create one record of that type by using the record's name followed by parentheses.
For example, suppose your program contains this declaration:
record complex ( r, i )This expression would create a record of type ``
complex'' and store it in variable ``
x := complex ( );If you wish, you can supply initial values for the fields by placing them inside the parentheses. For example, this expression
y := complex ( 0, 5.9 );would set ``
y'' to a record of type ``
complex'' whose ``
r'' field would contain the integer 0 and whose ``
i'' field would contain the real number 5.9.
