How and where does history() function affect forecast() or the Scheduler's execution

Hi Friends

I understand the idea behind using history() in the Gnuradio blocks but
there is one thing that I would like to know in order to understand the
rationale behind using it. I looked at ‘’
gain an understanding of scheduler implementation and understood how the
forecast() method plays a role. But I wasn’t able to figure out how
history() affects its execution. In a previous post Eric said that it
affects the way forecast() behaves and suggested to look at forecast().
I am not sure of where to look. Can someone tell me where to look at ?

It’s used in the implementation of forecast in, and gr_sync_decimator (indirectly).

In looking at the code, I think there’s a long standing latent bug
in gr_block’s forecast, which should be using history in it’s stub
implementation. I’ve opened ticket:262.
