Expansion based on version 4.0.1

All codes from system

createcreatecreate(type : string) - type is passed through to the application on the standard API, and must be known by it.
truncatetruncatetruncate(source, length) - source must be stringy type.
escapeescapeescape(source, fmt1, fmt2) - change source from one kind of escaping to another (plain, java, xml, json). note that this is for when the string itself is escaped.
castcastcast(source, type?) - case source from one type to another. target type can be left as implicit if there is one and only one target type known.
appendappendappend(source...) - source is element or string.
translatetranslatetranslate(source, uri_of_map) - use the translate operation.
referencereferencereference(source : object) - return a string that references the provided tree properly.
dateOpdateOpPerform a date operation. *Parameters to be documented*.
uuiduuidGenerate a random UUID (in lowercase). No Parameters.
pointerpointerReturn the appropriate string to put in a reference that refers to the resource provided as a parameter.
evaluateevaluateExecute the supplied FHIRPath expression and use the value returned by that.
ccccCreate a CodeableConcept. Parameters = (text) or (system. Code[, display]).
ccCreate a Coding. Parameters = (system. Code[, display]).
qtyqtyCreate a quantity. Parameters = (text) or (value, unit, [system, code]) where text is the natural representation e.g. [comparator]value[space]unit.
ididCreate an identifier. Parameters = (system, value[, type]) where type is a code from the identifier type value set.
cpcpCreate a contact details. Parameters = (value) or (system, value). If no system is provided, the system should be inferred from the content of the value.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - see Code System for further information
SourceThe source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
