Accepts lists as input, where the first number is taken as the outlet number, and one or more values that follow are sent out that outlet and those to its right, in right-to-left order. The argument sets the number of outlets (there is no set limit). The default number of outlets is 2.
The first argument sets the number of outlets. If there is no argument present, the object has two outlets.
The second argument sets an offset for the numbering of the outlets. If the second argument is not present, the outlets are numbered beginning with 0.
The third argument, if set to '1', sets the object to "list mode." In "list mode," an entire list is output through the indicated outlet (with the optional offset provided by the second object argument), instead of unpacking the list and sending the individual elements out sequential outlets. This argument defaults to '0'.
