Scilab help >> Advanced functions > bytecode


given a function returns the "bytecode" of a function in a Scilab array and conversely.

Calling Sequence

x = bytecode(f)
f= bytecode(X)



A scilab function.


an int32 row vector


x= bytecode(f) returns the "bytecode" of the function f in the Scilab integer array x.

f= bytecode(x) returns in f the function associated with the "bytecode" given in the Scilab integer array x. Warning the validity of x is not checked.


The bytecode of Scilab function will evolve drastically in the future, So the use of this function should be restricted to the profiling instruction handling.


function a=foo(),a=sin(3),endfunction
