On the fly set_output_multiple()

Dear Sir,

I need to create a interpolator block which has a callback function to
change its interpolation factor on the fly.

If this block is inherited from gr::sync_interpolator, its interpolation
factor cannot be changed on the fly because the interpolation factor is
an
argument of its constructor.

The alternative is to inherit from gr::block instead. If the
set_output_multiple() could be called on the fly, then the problem is
solved.

The problem is, the set_output_multiple() could not be changed on the
fly !

Any solution to this?
The objective is to create an interpolator block that its interpolation
factor could be changed on the fly.

Thanks in advance.

Well, in a ::block you can do whatever you like with your in- and output
buffers. Also, forecast() is called all the time, and its behaviour can
by dynamic. So, between those you should be able to figure something
out.

  1. Edit forecast()
  2. in general_work(), check if buffer sizes work
  3. produce() and consume() as required

Dear Martin,

Thanks for the hints.
I think this function helps: set_min_noutput_items()

Problem:
Says, the instantaneous interpolation_factor is 3.
As inherited from gr::block, the scheduler may call the general_work()
with
noutput_items=2 (any number is possible).
When this happen, there is nothing to be done except to consume_each(0)
and
return 0 in the general_work().
But then the scheduler will repeat calling general_work() many times
with
noutput_items=2. This is fatal.

Solution:
On the fly, set_min_noutput_items(3)
Then the scheduler will not call general_work() with noutput_items
equals a
value less than 3.
This solves the problems !

Question:
Does this function work on the fly? set_min_noutput_items()

Thank you very much.

You could tweak forecast() to require more input.

It should, that’s what it was made for.
