Default Iteration Variable!
Posts: n/a

Does anybody know the variable where the current iteration number is stored? I'm trying to code a udf which has to be accessed every 5-10 iterations.

I know that there is no global fluent variable containing the current iteration value. Here is my quick&dirty workaround coded in the UDF's.


static int my_iter_counter = 0; static int exec_my_udf = 0;


my_iter_counter =

exec_my_udf = 0;

... init something else here ... }

/* called after each iteration */ DEFINE_ADJUST(...) {


* switch UDF exec on at each 10th iteration,

* else off, start with on (iteration 0)


exec_my_udf = (my_iter_counter++ % 10) == 0;

... adjust something else here ... }

/* called for each cell/thread.. it depends */ DEFINE_SOURCE/PROPERTY/ETC(...) {

if (!exec_my_udf)

return; /* or return 0 or whatever */

... execute UDF ... }


This works fine.

With best regards

Thanks for your reply, By the way I have found that the iteration variable is stored in a vector called count2[nres-1]. To use this you can define a variable, such as int itervar=(nres==0)?(1)(int)count2[nres-1]); Thanks
