Analysis Technique Variable Store

Variable store allows to save variables between analysis technique calls. It can be used to, for example to hold previous function values or to store function contexts (see previous value based functions). 


Stored variables can't be passed to Functions as reference parameters.


For Functions only: if there are at least one defined stored variable, then function automatically gets first parameter of type FunctionContext that must be passed in function call. See previous value based functions for details.


See the list of available stored variables types.
