variable in local function in livescript

6 views (last 30 days)
In livescript,
I define
a=1;
Then define a local function
function y = multi(x)
y = a*x;
end
This will give an error message. How can I define a as a global variable?

The variable a is defined in base workspace and hence, the error is because of the unavailability of variable a in function workspace. To share the data from base workspace with function workspace, you may make the variable a global.
global a
a = 1;
You also need to declare a as global in the function
function y = multi(x)
global a
y = a*x;
end
You may refer the following documentation for different practices of sharing data between workspaces
You may refer the following docmentation for differences between base and function workspace
