WTIK is a CAOS command that returns the number of World Ticks that have passed since its creation. WTIK returns an integer. (World TIcKs)

Usage[]

Syntax: WTIK

Examples[]

Make your agent perform an action only if 300 ticks have passed since its last activation:

In this example, we use two variables (VA08, VA09) to keep track of the amount of ticks since the most recent "SUCCESS!" or since initilization. Using basic math (SUBV) and flow control (DOIF, ELSE, ENDI), we can ensure that 300 ticks pass between each instance of "SUCCESS!". The first time this code is called, VA08 and VA09 are initialized and nothing noticable happens.

DOIF VA08 EQ 0
   SETV VA09 WTIK
ELSE
   SETV VA09 WTIK
   SUBV VA09 VA08
   DOIF VA09 GE 300
      SETV VA09 WTIK
      SEZZ "SUCCESS!"
   ELSE
      SEZZ "Please wait longer."
      SETV VA09 VA08
   ENDI
ENDI
SETV VA08 VA09
