good morning
another quick question - is it possible to set a variable for a nextflow process from within a script snippet (say I run a piece of Perl code inside a NF process to determine a value for some variable to be used in my output declaration)
getting a bit confused how nf variables interact with embedded code (quotes, dollar signs etc...)

Hi
I think you are asking this this nextflow-io/nextflow#69
thus no (at thus time)

@pditommaso - we want to add a check to our pipeline that makes sure that the version of nextflow is recent enough
Long shot, but don't suppose that there's a nice built-in function to compare version numbers that we can use? ;)
I know that there is $workflow.nextflow.version, but a quick google suggests that we need a confusing-looking 20 line function to check whether this is greater than a hardcoded value..

are you suggesting to add that 20 confusing-looking lines of code as a NF built-in function ? :)
it makes sense, please open a feature request on GH
