zaw — Writes to a za variable at a-rate without mixing.


Writes to a za variable at a-rate without mixing.


zaw asig, kndx


asig -- value to be written to the za location.

kndx -- points to the za location to which to write.

zaw writes asig into the za variable specified by kndx.

These opcodes are fast, and always check that the index is within the range of zk or za space. If not, an error is reported, 0 is returned, and no writing takes place.


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