# getqexpnextterm

Purpose
Enumerate the list of terms contained in a quadratic expression.
Synopsis
```void *getqexpnextterm(XPRMctx ctx, void *quadctx, mmquad_qexp q, void *prev, XPRMmpvar *v1, XPRMmpvar *v2, double *coeff);```
Arguments
 ctx Mosel's execution context quadctx Context of mmquad q Reference to a quadratic expression prev Last value returned by this function. Should be NULL for the first call v1,v2 Pointers to return the decision variable references for the current term coeff Pointer to return the coefficient of the current term
Return value
The value to be used as prev for the next call o NULL when all terms have been returned.
Example
The following displays the terms of a quadratic expression:
```void dispqexp(XPRMcontext ctx, mmquad_qexp q)
{
void *prev;
XPRMmpvar v1,v2;
double coeff;
int nlin,ct;

mq->getqexpstat(ctx, quadctx, q, &nlin, NULL, NULL, NULL);
ct=0;
prev=mq->getqexpnextterm(ctx, quadctx, q, NULL, &v1, &v2, &coeff);
mm->printf(ctx, "%g ", coeff);
while(prev!=NULL) {
prev=mq->getqexpnextterm(ctx, quadctx, q, prev, &v1, &v2, &coeff);
if(ct<nlin) { mm->printf(ctx,"%+g %p", coeff, v2); ct++; }
else mm->printf(ctx,"%+g %p * %p", coeff, v1, v2);
}
mm->printf(ctx,"\n");
} ```
Further information
This function can be called repeatedly to enumerate all terms of a quadratic expression. For the first call, the parameter prev must be NULL and the function returns the constant term of the quadratic expression (for v1 and v2 the value NULL is returned and coeff contains the constant term). For the following calls, the value of prev must be the last value returned by the function. The enumeration is completed when the function returns NULL.
If this function is called repeatedly, after the constant term it returns next all linear terms and then the quadratic terms.
