## Re: Eureka!

I should probably be ashamed to admit it but here goes my eureka moment for today.

I think it was Mark Twain that wrote "If yo only have a hammer everything looks like a nail." So I guess I am a "one hammer" guy.

What was my eureka?

The single element bundle (not Bundle by Name, aka my hammer) solves the problem of having a 2d array were the were different numbers of collumns in each row. I must have tracked the sub-array lenght a thousand times over the years never thinking that I could use a simple "Bundle".

Thanks

Oh man, this is one of those "I thought everybody knew this" ideas that I discarded as a potential Nugget post.  Lesson learned...

I'll post this as an occasional nugget soon.

Bundle by name seems nearly equivalent (except for the need to wire the type) with the advantage of better implicit documentation. In newer LabVIEW versions you can even iconify the cluster template.

So I was not alone in overlooking this option.

I'll try to remeber to show my igonorance on a more regular basis.

Christian,

With the schedule I have lately, just scanning the titles on the LV board is a challenge to keep up with.

Darren,

For the sake of completeness nuggetize it. But don't be suprised if it does not get a bunch of accolades since it was just Eurekanized.

LOL, my dyslexia just kicked in. Was skimming the post and read Eurekanized as Euthanized
