Loops, Variables and Functions


The processing of layouts or a large number of BEAMER flows often requires the modification of parameters in specific locations of the flow. Variable handling is a critical factor for efficient and flexible work within flows and pattern processing.


BEAMER provides various options for the use of variables within flows. Variables can be defined as local or global variables, depending on their location. Additionally, variables can be used in mathematical formulas or to read environmental parameters. They are beneficial in a daily work environment.

By using variables, BEAMER users can create more flexible and reusable flows. This can save time and effort, and it can also improve the accuracy and reliability of the results.
