docs for m4l-externals


When I open and read m4l originally attached patches, I found some externals have no help/reference.
Loop Shifter’s [ls.central] seems to useful data storage(?)
Step Sequencer’s [step.overplay] seems plaing some important role too.

I want to know whether I can get some docs of these externals.
Is that unavailable?

No. As you have noticed, there are some undocumented externals and these are going to stay that way.

The history of these is usually that the extern started life as a Javascript script, then was later turned into a C extern for performance gains. They are always specific to the device they are in and not intended at all for any wider function than that.

ok. that’s disappointedly but I give up using these externals and try to implement other way.

Thank you for your reply.
