listout [int] (default: 0)
When enabled, the capture object will dump its contents as a list. Otherwise the object sends its contents one item at a time. Default = 0.
precision [int] (default: 4)
Floating-point precision to use when printing floating-point numbers to the capture object's window. Default = 4.
size [atom_long] (default: 512)
The maximum number of items which can be stored in the capture object's internal buffer. When resized, the object will attempt to retain the existing captured data. If the current capture position is already greater than the new size (if the buffer size is reduced), it will be reset to 0. Default = 512.

(Although capture can continue to store items while the editing window is open, the editing window is not updated. It must be closed and reopened to view the newly stored items.)
