bool_ns IsBeliefUpdated_bn ( const node_bn*  node )

Returns TRUE if belief updating (i.e., computing the posterior probability of node) has been done so that the beliefs at node are consistent with the current state of the net and current findings entered into the net, otherwise it returns FALSE.

The main use of this function is to determine if Netica will do belief propagation (which may be time consuming) the next time GetNodeBeliefs_bn or GetNodeExpectedUtils_bn is called with this node.


This function is available in all versions.
