Messages

bang

Send all stored messages

int

Arguments

input [int]
In any inlet: The input is stored in the location corresponding to that inlet, and causes anything previously stored to be sent out its corresponding outlet. If no message has yet been received in a particular inlet, 0 is sent out of the corresponding outlet.

float

Arguments

input [float]
In any inlet: The input is stored in the location corresponding to that inlet, and causes anything previously stored to be sent out its corresponding outlet. If no message has yet been received in a particular inlet, 0 is sent out of the corresponding outlet.

list

Arguments

input [list]
In any inlet: The elements of the list are parsed among the inlets. The first element in the list is sent out the outlet which corresponds to the inlet which received the list and each subsequent element in the list is sent out each subsequent outlet.

If the "n" argument was used, bondo will store and output lists for each outlet in addition to single numbers.

anything

Arguments

input [list]
In any inlet: The input is stored in the location corresponding to that inlet, and causes anything previously stored to be sent out its corresponding outlet. If no message has yet been received in a particular inlet, 0 is sent out of the corresponding outlet.

set

Arguments

input [list]
In any inlet: The word set , followed by any message, stores the input in the location corresponding to that inlet without triggering any output.

Output

any message

Anything stored in an inlet is sent out the corresponding outlet numbers. Output is immediate if triggered by a bang . If output is triggered by a message, and a second argument has been typed in, output will be delayed by the number of milliseconds specified in the second argument.
