pyrun Opcodes

pyrun — Run a Python statement or block of statements.


pyrun "statement"
pyruni "statement"
pylrun "statement"
pylruni "statement"
pyrunt ktrigger, "statement"
pylrunt ktrigger, "statement"


Plugin opcode in py. This opcode is part of the plugin repository and has to be installed separately. The plugin repository can be found here:

Execute the specified Python statement at k-time (pyrun and pylrun) or i-time (pyruni and pylruni).

The statement is executed in the global environment for pyrun and pyruni or the local environment for pylrun and pylruni.

These opcodes perform no message passing. However, since the statement have access to the main namespace and the private namespace, it can interact with objects previously created in that environment.

The "local" version of the pyrun opcodes are useful when the code ran by different instances of an instrument should not interact.

Example of the pyrun Opcode Group

Example 888. Orchestra


;If you are not running CsoundAC you need the following line
;to initialize the python interpreter

pyruni "import random"

instr 1
        ; This message is stored in the main namespace
        ; and is the same for every instance
        pyruni  "message = 'a global random number: %f' % random.random()"
        pyrun   "print message"

        ; This message is stored in the private namespace
        ; and is different for different instances
        pylruni "message = 'a private random number: %f' % random.random()"
        pylrun  "print message"

Example 889. Score

i1 0 0.1

Running this score you should get intermixed pairs of messages from the two instances of instrument 1.

The first message of each pair is stored into the main namespace and so the second instance overwrites the message of the first instance. The result is that first message will be the same for both instances.

The second message is different for the two instances, being stored in the private namespace.
