Finish to Start Dependency - Something like @wait/wait()? (Tiny)
I'm sure there's something in programming lingo for this. But I'm a project manager, not a programmer, so we get project manager lingo.
I'm updating my poseorder code, so you can remove someone from the list. I want to flag this person has posed (so it can send the alert to whomever is next), and then remove them. I need the 'has posed' bit of code to run BEFORE the 'remove them' bit of code.
Here's the actual code snippet:
strcat( u( f.poseorder, %qp ), remit( %1, u( .msg, Pose Order, [name(%2)] has removed [name(%qp)]. )), u( .msg, Pose Order, You remove [name(%qp)]. ), wipe( %ql/d.pose.*.%qp ) )
f.poseorderneeds to run and finish before the
Now, normally, if I needed something delayed I'd just use @wait. But there's not a wait() equivalent that I can put into the strcat(). Unless there is one?
So, ideas, suggestions... thanks!
@skew I'm not really clear on what you're trying to do with strcat there. But in general, if you do:
[ u( x ) ] [ u( y ) ]
Then x will run and finish before y.
You can use a
setqto save the results if you need to (but that gets into the need to localize and other goofiness):
[ setq( 0 , u( x ) ) ] [ strcat( %q0 , y ) ]
There is no equivalent to wait() in function programming.
I swear I've seen things process before other things, but, uh, in this case... I was just being a dummy. Everything is working as it ought to. I had set a little snippet of code to say 'don't alert the person if there's only one person' and was testing with 2 people, and removing 1, so yeah...
As long as you remain within the functions, or command-lists, it should be fine.
It's when your command lists start containing the following specific commands: (@dolist, @wait, @trigger, are the ones I can think of)
@emit a; @dolist b c d=@emit ##; @emit e;
That you'll get stuff like:
a e b c d
This is because of how command queues work. This gets resolved with doing stuff like:
@emit a; @dolist/notify b c d=@emit ##; @wait me=@emit e;
