## How to make two referencing sub-projection works? New Contributor III

I have below code, which doesn't work. h and g are 2 projections defined inside f, and they are referencing to each other.

f=g

=h + 20

=g + 30 + 20

=h + 20 + 30 + 20

=g + 30 + 20 + 30 + 20

=h[-2] +20 + 30 + 20 + 30 + 20

= -2 + 120 = 118

`f:{[xF] g:{[h;xG] \$[xG < 0; xG; h[xG - 2] + 20]}[h]; // doesn't work, as h is not yet defined h:{[g;xH] \$[xH < 0; xH; g[xH - 3] + 30]}[g]; g[xF] };f;`

How to make it works?

``````f:{[xF]
g:{[h;xG] \$[xG < 0; xG; h[.z.s; xG - 2] + 20]};
h:{[g;xH] \$[xH < 0; xH; g[.z.s; xH - 3] + 30]};
g[h; xF]
};
f;
``````

Another option is to use .z.s to refer to the calling function when calling the other function.

This is a chicken and the egg situation. Define g and h without the projections first then define them with the projections.

`f:{[xF] g:{[h;xG] \$[xG < 0; xG; h[xG - 2] + 20]}; h:{[g;xH] \$[xH < 0; xH; g[xH - 3] + 30]}; g:g[h];h:h[g]; g[xF] };` New Contributor III

Thanks for your reply. But the above code doesn't work. I got an "type: Mismatched types" error. New Contributor III

With f? Can't spot why and I didn't run the above as on mobile. Not sure why it doesn't work New Contributor III

yes, f doesn't work. New Contributor III

No worries. Kshephard's solution is nicer anyway. Will take a look later when at a pc to see why.  New Contributor
