Messages

bang

In left inlet: Performs the comparison with the numbers currently stored. If there is no argument, <= initially holds 0 for comparison.

int

Arguments

input [int]
In left inlet: If the number is less than or equal to the number in the right inlet, <= outputs 1 . Otherwise, <= outputs 0 .

  (inlet1)

Arguments

comparison-value [int]
In right inlet: The number is stored to be compared with a number received in the left inlet.

float

Arguments

input [float]
Converted to int before comparison, unless <= has a float argument.

set

Arguments

set-input [int]
The word set followed by a number will set the input number to the object without causing output.
