Default UDF: How to convert a float to a string?

Posts: n/a

I need the string representation of the flow time in my UDF.

The CURRENT_TIME macro outputs this time, but as a floating point number.

I tried to convert this float with sprintf into char[], but fluent says 'undeclared variable'. The arguments to sprintf are declared and o.k., of course.

any hints?

Hi again.

maybe I found a solution. If I compile my udf instead of interpreting it, i can use all this nice standard-C functions. O.K., at least I can use sprintf now.
