SIMION 8.0 Issues/Bugs/Enhancements

Filter issues by query:
Issue I529 [enhancement,resolved]
  New "ion_run" reserved variable.

  A new "ion_run" reserved variable can be used in user programs.
  This is the current run number (integer >= 1).
  It is incremented on each rerun.  It is readable in all segments
  and writable in none.

  Example:

    simion.workbench_program()
    function segment.initialize()
      print('run number=', ion_run)
    end

  This variable is available in 8.1 early access mode (see Issue I421).

  The ion_run variable can also be used in the data recording output file
  (see Issue I231).

  A workaround for earlier versions:

    simion.workbench_program()

    local nrun = 0
    function segment.initialize()
      if ion_number == 1 then nrun = nrun + 1 end
      print('run number=', nrun)
    end
    -- warning: above assumes initialize segment is called
    -- for ion number 1 (requires that ion be created inside
    -- a potential array instance).

  Added in 8.1 (8.0.5-TEST34 - early access).
