Search and Replace with gen

March 1, 2012 | 12:21 pm

Hello, Gen gurus

I am trying to find the closest (or perfect) match of specific values within a database. Eg. find the best match for (20 20 20).

I found a few non-gen solutions, for example a binary searching algorithm. But it takes its time to find a match and I figured a gen version might be faster, especially if I want to find a whole array of matches.

So my gen approach would be:
- Find a Cell in Matrix_2 that matches (or is close to) the values of cell_1 (Matrix_1).
==> copy the Id (stored on plane 3) to Cell_1 of Matrix_1
==> do the same for all other cells of Matrix_1 (which is what gen does?)
–> output.

I did have a look at the examples and I am able to find matching pairs with gen (step1) but I can’t find a solution as how to copy the Id.

Is that even possible with gen? Am I making sense? I would be glad if someone could give me a hint.

Thanks a bunch!

Mark
