The following built-ins are deprecated, but still working:
default: This was deprecated with the introduction of the default value operator.
exp1?default(exp2)is near equivalent with
(exp1)?default(exp2)is near equivalent with with
(exp1)!exp2. The only difference is that prior to FreeMarker 2.4, the
defaultbuilt-in has always evaluated
exp2, while the default value operator only evaluates it when the default value is really needed. Starting from FreeMarker 2.4, however, the
defaultbuilt-in was improved, and behaves exactly like the default value operator.
exists: This was deprecated with the introduction of the missing value test operator.
exp1?existsis equivalent with
(exp1)?existsis equivalent with with
if_exists: This was deprecated with the introduction of the default value operator.
exp1?if_existsis similar to
(exp1)?if_existsis similar to
(exp1)!. The difference is that the default value with
if_existsis not only empty string, empty sequence and empty hashs at the same time, but also boolean
falseand a transform that does nothing and ignores all parameters.
