Output numbers in a ramp from one value to another
|initial-value and grain||int or float||opt||The first argument sets the initial value to be stored in line and the output type for the object (floating-point or integer). If there is no argument, the initial value is and the output type is . The second argument sets an initial value for the grain: the time interval at which numbers are sent out. If the grain is not specified, line outputs a number every 20 milliseconds. The minimum grain allowed is 1 millisecond; any number less than 1 will be set to .|
|int||target-value ramp-time output-grain [int]
|| In left inlet: The number is the target value, to be arrived at in the time specified by the number in the middle inlet. If no time has been specified since the last target value, the time is considered 0 and line immediately outputs the target value.
Note: the output type for the line object is set by using the first argument to the object (see Arguments).
In middle inlet: The number is the time, in milliseconds, in which to arrive at the target value.
In right inlet: The number is the interval (in milliseconds) at which intermediary numbers are regularly sent out.
|float||target-value ramp-time output-grain [float]
||Performs the same function asbut with floats only if the object-argument is a float.|
|list||target-value and ramp-time [list]
||The first number specifies a target value, and the second number specifies a total amount of time (in milliseconds). In that amount of time, numbers are output regularly in a line from the currently stored value to the target value.|
|clock||setclock object name [symbol]
||The word line object to be controlled by that object rather than by Max’s internal millisecond clock. The word by itself sets the line object back to using Max’s regular millisecond clock., followed by the name of an existing object, sets the|
||In left inlet: The word line if it is in the process of sending out numbers., followed by a number, makes that number the new starting value from which to proceed to the next received target value. The message also stops|
|stop||In left inlet: Stops line from sending out numbers, until a new target value is received.|
|bline||Event-driven multi-segment line object|
|funbuff||Store x,y pairs of numbers together|
|setclock||Control the clock speed of timing objects remotely|
|uzi||Send a specific number of bang messages|
