Subject [GitHub] [systemml] mboehm7 commented on pull request #754: [SYSTEMML-2078] Add support for global variables
Date Fri, 01 May 2020 19:52:35 GMT

   Meanwhile, I think not supporting global variables might be better in the long run as it
keeps functions (except for explicit reads/writes) side-effect free. Back when discussing
this feature, it included two sub problems (1) builtin global constants like NaN, PI, INF,
as well as (2) different function scoping rules (with global access). Since (1) has already
been introduced (see
and meanwhile we extended the list functionality to pass parameters easier along function
call graphs, there is no more a real need for globals. However, I would leave this PR open,
in case we come back to it - then this would be an excellent starting point.
