zacl — Clears one or more variables in the za space.


Clears one or more variables in the za space.


zacl kfirst [, klast]


kfirst -- first za location in the range to clear.

klast -- last za location in the range to clear. If not given, only kfirst location is cleared

zacl clears one or more variables in the za space. This is useful for those variables which are used as accumulators for mixing a-rate signals at each cycle, but which must be cleared before the next set of calculations.


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