Round-robin messages to outlets
Each incoming number is sent to the next outlet, wrapping around to the first outlet after the last has been reached.
Determines the number of outlets. If there is no argument, there will be one outlet.
Sets the output mode. If it is non-zero, cycle detects separate "events" and restarts at the leftmost outlet when a new event occurs. Examples of separate events include messages with delays between them, and messages triggered by successive mouse clicks or MIDI events. A stream of items separated by commas in a message box is considered a single event. If this argument is not present or is , the values cycle through all the outlets, regardless of whether they are attached to separate events or not.

Out any outlet: In cycle mode, each successive int, float, or symbol received, either separately or as part of a list, is directed to an outlet to the right of the previous number. When the cycle reaches the rightmost outlet, the next number is sent out the left outlet.
In event-sensitive mode, any int, float, or symbol which is a new event restarts the output at the left outlet.
