Failure to call definition script

  • #1, by cr34m3Wednesday, 18. June 2014, 23:36 6 years ago
    Maybe someone can give me a hand here. I'm trying to call an execution script and keep getting this error in the log file:

    11:27:46 PM: [string "YPNo1: YPCheckSol: Execute script 'checksol..."]:2: attempt to call global 'checksol' (a nil value)
    11:27:46 PM: stack traceback:
    [string "YPNo1: YPCheckSol: Execute script 'checksol..."]:5: in function 'checksol'
    [string "YPNo1: YPCheckSol: Execute script 'checksol..."]:2: in function <[string "YPNo1: YPCheckSol: Execute script 'checksol..."]:1>
    [C]: in function 'xpcall'

    It's like VS does not recognise that the function checksol exists.
    Here's the script (don't mind the prints and the expanded variable declaration -- I've been trying things to fix fhis for more than an hour now).

    P1PosV = getObject('Values[P1Pos]')
    P2PosV = getObject('Values[P2Pos]')
    P6PosV = getObject('Values[P6Pos]')
    P7PosV = getObject('Values[P7Pos]')
    P8PosV = getObject('Values[P8Pos]')
    P1PV = P1PosV:getInt(VValueInt)
    P2PV = P2PosV:getInt(VValueInt)
    P6PV = P6PosV:getInt(VValueInt)
    P7PV = P7PosV:getInt(VValueInt)
    P8PV = P8PosV:getInt(VValueInt)
    PuzCor = getObject('Conditions[PuzzleCorrect]')
    PuzIncor = getObject('Conditions[PuzzleIncorrect]')

    function checksol()
    print("start checking")
    wrongon = true
    righton = true
    poscomp = {P1PV, P2PV, P6PV, P7PV, P8PV}
    possol = {3,2,4,5,1}
    print("start righton check")
    for k = 1 to 5 do
    if poscomp[k] != possol[k] then
    righton = false
    end
    end
    print("start wrongon check")
    for k = 1 to 5 do
    if poscomp[k] == possol[k] then
    wrongon = false
    end
    end

    PuzCor:setValue(VConditionValue,righton)
    PuzIncor:setValue(VConditionValue,wrongon)
    end

    != ? it's lua...

    does not equal is: ~=

    I keep getting strange messages like that too when I run scripts that I've made a mistake in or forgot to close off properly. Only done that in the RC version so the error messages are probably some bug in the RC version as they should just give you a short error message & the offending line number.

    quick note: you should use " " instead of ' ' as they are safer. Especially when it comes to strings.
    str1 = 'Isn\'t it a wonderful day?'
    str2 = "Isn't it a wonderful day?"
    1
    2
    3

    Nothing ground breaking...

    Also you might want to consider adding in a break inside of the for loops, just after the variable has been set as the rest of the i loops would be somewhat pointless.

    Ok... I feel like an utter idiot right now.
    I fixed the ~= and got the same error. I read slowly through the code again and then spot the huge syntax error that I should have picked up long ago:
    for k = 1 to 5 do
    1
    2

    This is just sad... red

    ai sus... I didn't spot that one either, but I did only give it a quick glance over.

    As for the 1, 5 part... I would probably have used table.maxn(possol) or #(possol), so it automatically adds the table total. I find it a bit more dynamic, in case the table might have data removed/added later on. Just a little tip/suggestion, but not important.
