How to calculate distance between nodes in ns2


Dynamic topology (random x and y coordinate) is created. Distance between the nodes is calculated by applying the node’s (x,y) coordinates in Pythagoras theorem. Distance output is printed in file.

for {set i 0} {$i < 10} {incr i} {

set xx($i) [expr rand()*$val(x)]
set yy($i) [expr rand()*$val(y)]

$node_($i) set X_ $xx($i)
$node_($i) set Y_ $yy($i)
$node_($i) set Z_ 0

puts "\n"
puts $r "\n"

for {set j 0} {$j < $val(nn) } { incr j } {

set dx [expr $xx($i) – $xx($j)]
set dy [expr $yy($i) – $yy($j)]

set dx2 [expr $dx * $dx]
set dy2 [expr $dy * $dy]

set h2 [expr $dx2 + $dy2]

set h($i-$j) [expr pow($h2, 0.5)]
puts "distance of node($i) from node($j) = $h($i-$j)"
puts $r "distance of node($i) from node($j) h($i-$j) = $h($i-$j)"
