In previous lessons, we told that the
clock node ticks. To be more precise, the node outputs pulses.
This data type is very different from all the others like numbers and booleans. Values in the XOD are transferred to the links continuously, even if they don’t change. They are like voltage. The pulse data type is different. Imagine something like a flash. It’s basically a message to trigger something else. It does not transmit any data. Howerver, it is useful when you need to convey that an event has occurred or tell something else to work.
And of course, XOD offers a
tweak-pulse node to send pulses manually during simulation.
Let’s play with pulses using
clocknode with an another
tweak-pulseand restart the simulation.
