ziw — Writes to a zk variable at i-rate without mixing.


Writes to a zk variable at i-rate without mixing.


ziw isig, indx


isig -- initializes the value of the zk location.

indx -- points to the zk location to which to write.


ziw writes isig into the zk variable specified by indx.

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 ziw opcode. It uses the file ziw.csd.
