Rube Goldberg Code

Those label arrows work nice for that. Place them outside all the structures, and point the label arrows inside. Double click the line of the arrow to go to the code. That works nicely as bookmarks (but faster than actual bookmarks).

 

I actually did this a few times. Works wonders in state machines. But I usually delete them when moving to the next issue.

 

Don't tell that to whoever needs tricks like this, it might be misinterpreted as encouragement.


Now I want a bigger block diagram so I can use this... that's pretty cool 🙂

Coloring the diagrams should work really well combined with the navigation window. 

Except that the navigation window cannot deal with this particular code. It takes forever to open and then the navigation windows is wrapped around and the grey area is wrong.

That one is particular bad.

 

That upper right corner looks like an image will appear if you stare at it cross-eyed.

Hahaha, it looks like it was programmed by a chip designer.

LOL I had to see what you meant because I had no idea what to expect.  All I can say is that you hit the nail right on the head there.  😄

Well, why can't we just wire a FALSE to all termination condition of many loops running in parallel, if we can use that magic special loop:

<sarcasm> Such an important loop of course deserves 100% attention of a dedicated CPU core <\sarcasm>

 


PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT, PLEASE READ

No, I am NOT recommending this ever! It is bad, bad, bad! I am sure there is a fraction of users that will copy that code claiming altenbach recommended it in the forum. No, I did not! Don't use it! This is the Rube Goldberg thread!

just name the timed loops,,,,,, you know you can stop timed loops by name right?

Yes, of course, but I doubt that using timed loops will significantly improve that particular code. 😄 It's beyond repair.

That's all way to complex.

No accompanying announcement, so guess I'm safe to repost/link to this and state that Wiebe recommended in the forum?
