Details

arange_arrays

List of all arrays to be filled with numbers (list of (var, varname, start) tuples

array_cache

Dictionary mapping ArrayVariable objects to their value or to None if the value (potentially) depends on executed code. This mechanism allows to access state variables in standalone mode if their value is known at run time

arrays

Dictionary mapping ArrayVariable objects to their globally unique name

build_on_run

Whether a run should trigger a build

build_options

build options

dynamic_arrays

List of all dynamic arrays Dictionary mapping DynamicArrayVariable objects with 1 dimension to their globally unique name

dynamic_arrays_2d

Dictionary mapping DynamicArrayVariable objects with 2 dimensions to their globally unique name

has_been_run

Whether the simulation has been run

static_arrays

Dict of all static saved arrays

zero_arrays

List of all arrays to be filled with zeros (list of (var, varname) )

build(directory='output', compile=True, run=True, debug=False, clean=False, with_output=True, additional_source_files=None, run_args=None, direct_call=True, **kwds)[source]

Build the project

TODO: more details

Parameters:

directory : str, optional

The output directory to write the project to, any existing files will be overwritten. If the given directory name is None, then a temporary directory will be used (used in the test suite to avoid problems when running several tests in parallel). Defaults to 'output'.

compile : bool, optional

Whether or not to attempt to compile the project. Defaults to True.

run : bool, optional

Whether or not to attempt to run the built project if it successfully builds. Defaults to True.

debug : bool, optional

Whether to compile in debug mode. Defaults to False.

with_output : bool, optional

Whether or not to show the stdout of the built program when run. Output will be shown in case of compilation or runtime error. Defaults to True.

clean : bool, optional

Whether or not to clean the project before building. Defaults to False.

additional_source_files : list of str, optional

A list of additional .cpp files to include in the build.

direct_call : bool, optional

Whether this function was called directly. Is used internally to distinguish an automatic build due to the build_on_run option from a manual device.build call.

get_array_filename(var, basedir='results')[source]

Return a file name for a variable.

Parameters:

var : ArrayVariable

The variable to get a filename for.

basedir : str

The base directory for the filename, defaults to 'results'.

Returns :

——- :

filename : str

A filename of the form 'results/'+varname+'_'+str(hash(varname)), where varname is the name returned by get_array_name.

Notes

The reason that the filename is not simply 'results/' + varname is that this could lead to file names that are not unique in file systems that are not case sensitive (e.g. on Windows).

get_array_name(var, access_data=True)[source]

Return a globally unique name for var().

Parameters:

access_data : bool, optional

For DynamicArrayVariable objects, specifying True here means the name for the underlying data is returned. If specifying False, the name of object itself is returned (e.g. to allow resizing).

init_with_arange(var, start, dtype)[source]
init_with_zeros(var, dtype)[source]
insert_code(slot, code)[source]

reinit()[source]
resize(var, new_size)[source]
run(directory, with_output, run_args)[source]
run_function(name, include_in_parent=True)[source]

Context manager to divert code into a function

Code that happens within the scope of this context manager will go into the named function.

Parameters:

name : str

The name of the function to divert code into.

include_in_parent : bool

Whether or not to include a call to the newly defined function in the parent context.

seed(seed=None)[source]

Set the seed for the random number generator.

Parameters:

seed : int, optional

The seed value for the random number generator, or None (the default) to set a random seed.
