GEN25 — Construct functions from segments of exponential curves in breakpoint fashion.

These subroutines are used to construct functions from segments of exponential curves in breakpoint fashion.

*size * -- number of points in the table. Must be a power of 2 or power-of-2 plus 1 (see *f statement*).

*x1, x2, x3,* etc. -- locations in table at which to attain the following y value. Must be in increasing order. If the last value is less than size, then the rest will be set to zero. Should not be negative but can be zero.

*y1, y2, y3,*, etc. -- Breakpoint values attained at the location specified by the preceding x value. These must be non-zero and must be alike in sign.

If p4 is positive, functions are post-normalized (rescaled to a maximum absolute value of 1 after generation). A negative p4 will cause rescaling to be skipped. |

Here is an example of the GEN25 generator. It uses the file *gen25.csd*.

See the sections *Real-time Audio* and *Command Line Flags* for more information on using command line flags.
