[Spread-users] Dynamic size scatter

I was struggling with the same problem. I sent a scatter filled with n elements and expected to receive an identically structured scatter at the sink.  Unfortunately my expectation were not fulfilled and I decided for a workaround that equals more a dirty hack than a satisfying solution. Maybe I misinterpreted the scatter element structure but I expected that the scatter element size should be used at the receiver for decoding the element. 
Maybe someone of you has an idea to solve this issue.  

Kind regards

Hello everyone

I've been trying to send and receive a scatter with scat_elements of variable length. At the receiving end I reserved the maximum of the possibly needed memory. 
The problem is that SP_receive fills up the buf* with values until its full, ignoring the len values of the scat_elements.

The question now is if it is possible to receive messages of variable length at all? 

Sincerely, Stefan
