Description

Hello !

Thanks for your datatool and datatooltk piece of software !

A very humble feature addition would be to have the equivalent DTLisinlist of the DTLifinlist. We could then use DTLisinlist in the DTLforeach statement to select rows according to a list.

Although there is a workaround, using DTLifinlist inside a DTLforeach loop, it is not very satisfactory nor readable.

To plead for this feature, since it is somme kind of a primitive, I guess it should not be too much connected with other features, therefore not compromising the rest of the construction.

I will try to make it with the example of DTLifinlist ... but I have not your skill :(

Nice day !

MWE

No mwe.tex

Evaluation

I've added \DTLisinlist to version 2.23. (The commands that work within \ifthenelse seem to require the use of \TE@throw so I've implemented it slightly differently to your suggestion.)

I found a bypass, quite obvious but still usefull, to transform any DTLif... in DTLis... usable in DTLforeach for instance.

Here it is:

\newcommand{\DTLisinlist}[2]{\DTLifinlist{#1}{#2}{true}{false}}
Hope it helps.
