      Description

      I'm trying to implement a decision table for implementing some very simple rules. Currently I apparently am getting into what I believe is an infinite loop as the call never comes back from the fireAllRules method. I had this happen when I implemented the same rules as a DRL and using "no-loop" solved the problem, but reading the documentation for the UNLOOP keyword to turn on no-loop, this is the only description:

      "Indicates that if there cell values in this column, the no-loop attribute should be set"

      In addition to the missing words (i.e. "If there ??? cell values..."), this is not very descriptive. Which column? What values? The no-loop attribute SHOULD be set?

      Would it be possible to show an example of where and how each of these keywords would be used? These keywords can exist at multiple levels of the XLS doc (i.e. the rule set, the rule, individual columns, etc.) so it's quite confusing as to the actual syntax of these. I haven't seen an example yet that uses UNLOOP, and the documentation (as stated above) is not very helpful as to how to implement this.

      Thanks
