create_funct_1d_pairs — Create a function from a set of (x,y) pairs.
create_funct_1d_pairs creates a one-dimensional function from a set of pairs of (x,y) values. The XValues of the functions have to be passed in ascending order. The resulting function can then be processed and analyzed with the operators for 1d functions.
Alternatively, functions can be created with the operator create_funct_1d_array. In contrast to this operator, x values with arbitrary positions can be specified with create_funct_1d_pairs. Hence, it is the more general operator. It should be noted, however, that because of this generality the processing of a function created with create_funct_1d_pairs cannot be carried out as efficiently as for equidistant functions. In particular, not all operators accept such functions. If necessary, a function can be transformed into an equidistant function with the operator sample_funct_1d.
create_funct_1d_pairs examines whether the x-values of type 'double' are ascending. Some other operators apply the same check but use the type 'float' instead of 'double'. If such an operator is called as successor, it might happen that two consecutive x-values seem to be equal for the 'float' variant, although they were ascending in the 'double' variant. If this happens, an error is thrown.
X value for function points.
Y-value for function points.
