[an error occurred while processing this directive] $ModuleNumber

  • $ModuleNumber gives the current serial number to be used for local variables that are created.
  • $ModuleNumber is incremented every time Module or Unique is called.
  • Every Mathematica session starts with $ModuleNumber set to 1.
  • You can reset $ModuleNumber to any positive integer, but if you do so, you run the risk of creating naming conflicts.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.6.3.
  • See also: $SessionID, Temporary.
