Breed Procedures Example

[screen shot]

If you download the NetLogo application, this model is included. You can also Try running it in NetLogo Web

WHAT IS IT?

This shows how to use the run command to give different breeds different definitions of the "same" procedure.

THINGS TO NOTICE

You could accomplish the same thing with code like this:

  ifelse breed = dogs
  [ dogs-speak ]
  [ ifelse breed = cats
    [ cats-speak ]
    [ cows-speak ] ]

but such code is tedious to write and runs slower.

NETLOGO FEATURES

The run command is fast when you use it over and over again on the same strings, so using this technique won't hurt the performance of your model.
