  1. Hi guys Can you set global variables using python within an HDA? I have an ordered menu that is being populated by a python menu script. Is it possible to set a global variable from in there? Thanks!
  2. Hi Is it possible to modify, from inside a function, a variable that was declared outside that function? For example this code wont work: void functionX() { y = 5; } int y; functionX(); Is there a way to reference that variable inside the function?
  3. Hi What if I want to print in the textport (or read somewhere) the value of the $HDA_TABLE_NAME variable? Variables like that are not visible in the "Aliases and Variables" window...
  4. Hi all! I'm pretty noob with houdini so maybe this will be a silly question :-) As the title says, I can't find a "direct" way to access to global variables in point/attribute wrangle nodes( maybe it's not possible?). In my case I would access to $NFRAMES global variable to pass as parameter in fit() function to normalize frames count, but obvioulsy as reference guide say: Now I found a workaround: I create an attribute(with attributeCreate node) with $NFRAMES as value and then I can access in the wrangle code snippet. It works but I don't like this method because: for now I have just a bunch of points and the memory footprint is relatively low but what if I crank up the value for thousands of points? if I'm not wrong, integer values are handled as C small int so 4bytes*100.000 points will increase the memory footprint( I know that are just of bunch of KB but I'm "obsessed" with time/space performance). There are some "clean" way of get global variables? Thanks in advance
