Print a matrix as text in the Max window


The jit.print object prints matrix values for display in the Max window. Due to limitations of the Max window, it works best for smaller matrices. To see larger matrices, see the jit.fprint, which works similarly, but prints to a file. Delimiters may be set for plane, column and row. Dimensions are delimited by DIM N , where N = the current dimension.
