Hello
I am a beginner with the writing of formulas.

I have two questions:

1.
In the triangle inequality average coloring program we find:

IF (!first)
az2 = cabs(#z - #pixel)
lowbound = abs(az2 - ac)
sum = sum + ((cabs(#z) - lowbound) / (az2+ac - lowbound))
ELSE
first = false
ENDIF

I suppose that !first means the value of first but I am not sure.

  1. I don't understand very well how this program works. Please can you explain?

Thank You

Hi Giovanni,

The ! operator is boolean not, and it reverses the condition. So the first line says "If not first", so if first is false, then proceed with the statements that follow the if.

If you're new to UF, I would recommend you to do the tutorials first:

Here is full documentation regarding the formula language:
