 FUNCTION Alias0() AS STRING

Return Value

If there is no database file in use, Alias0() returns a NULL_STRING.
Remarks
Alias0() is the same as Alias() except that Alias0() accepts no arguments.  (This is indicated by the "0" in the function name.)
Therefore, when no argument is required, Alias0() should be used instead of Alias() to increase program efficiency.

X#
1USE file1 NEW ALIAS Test1
2QOut(Alias0())        // Returns: Test1
