passign — Assigns a range of p-fields to ivariables.


Assigns a range of p-fields to ivariables, or i- or k-array.


 ivar1, ... passign [istart][, iend
 iarray passign [istart][, iend
 karray passign [istart][, iend


The optional argument istart gives the index of the first p-field to assign. The default value is 1, corresponding to the instrument number.

The optional argument iend gives the index of the last p-field to assign. The default value is 0, which means all.

One of the variables can be a string variable, in which case it is assigned the only string parameter, if there is one, or an error otherwise.


passign transfers the instrument p-fields to instrument variables, starting with the one identified by the istart argument. There should not be more variables than p-fields, but there may be fewer.

passign can transfer the instrument p-fields to a one dimensional array, either an iarray or a karray.

Here is an example of the passign opcode. It uses the file passign.csd.
