Example text

To break this cycle, a local variable nFee is used to hold an "estimated" transaction fee; and a new transaction is constructed based on the estimate. After the construction, the real transaction fee is calculated and compared with the estimate. If the estimate is less than the real, changed the estimate to the calculated transaction fee and start all over. Here is the source code of GetMinFee(). 1: class CTransaction 2: { 3: //...... nValue < CENT) 16: nMinFee = CENT; 17: return nMinFee; 18: } 19: //......

Since the new transaction txTo/wtxNew you created is about to spend coins from txFrom, you must be the creator of txFrom as well. That is to say, you’re spending coins sent to you by yourself when you created toForm. Therefore, since is a public key of the creator of txFrom, it is also a public key of you. Let’s pause for a moment and think about Scripts A and B. You may be wondering where they come from. Well, they come from the code we just covered. Specifically, Script A comes from line 29 of CSendDialog::OnButtonSend(), and Script B from line 44 of CreateTransaction().

This input slot contains a reference to an output slot of txFrom. n] (line 6) is the output slot of txFrom that txin refers to. Here is what SignSignature() does: Calls SignatureHash() to generate a hash of txTo. Calls function Solver() to sign the hash generated. Calls EvalScript() to evaluate a piece of script to make sure the signature is correctly. Let’s examine these 3 functions. 2. cpp Here is the source code of SignatureHash(). size()) 4: { 5: printf("ERROR: SignatureHash() : nIn=%d out of range\n", nIn); 6: return 1; 7: } 8: CTransaction txTmp(txTo); 9: // In case concatenating two scripts ends up with two codeseparators, 10: // or an extra one at the end, this prevents all those possible incompatibilities.
