strcpyk — Assign value to a string variable (k-rate)


Assign to a string variable by copying the source which may be a constant or another string variable. strcpyk does the assignment both at initialization and performance time.


Sdst strcpyk Ssrc


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

Example 1061. Example of the strcpyk opcode.

See the sections Real-time Audio and Command Line Flags for more information on using command line flags.
