kill one lua file with an other or how to get out of a loop?


Recommended Posts

Hello Pete,

I try to generate a little failure generator...

One lua is for the failures, an other is for resetting them

I have a LUA loop ("while") in the failure lua and have get out of this loop.

I found one solution to set a global variable in the loop and change it with the reset lua to get out of the loop.

But I think you will have a better solution.

One idea is, to send a "kill" to the failure lua.

I know about the kill possibility via the FSUIPC menu, but I'd like to have it inside the reset lua

Sth like "ipc.kill("failure.lua") or however this is called or possible....

Or you have an other idea how I can get out of this loop

(the loop controls fuel flow. as the fuel flow is resetting itself you have to permanently send "fuel flow XY". to reset I'd like to cancel this loop as the fuel flow is then restting itself)

Hope you understand!

thanks very much!!!!

Yes, that is an efficient way for separate Lua threads to talk to each other.

Well, that's possible, of course, but it isn't really as tidy as having them talk to each other via Global variables.

It's done by the ipc.macro() function, so:

ipc.macro("LuaKill failure")

Regards

Pete
