Hello all! I’m new here to the forum, and something’s been bugging me which I can’t figure out.
I’ve made a patch which coverts a number (in flonum) to a different unit of measurement.
So I essentially have two flonum boxes which say
FLONUM degrees C = FLONUM degrees F
Question is, what can I do to the patch to make it backwards compatible? As in, so when I modify the value of ‘degrees F’ it changes the ‘degrees C’ flonum without creating a loop and stack error? Anything which does not require extra Max externals would be great!
I don’t believe that you’ll be able to get away with using not extra Max objects at all, but have you taken a look at the "set" message?
I didn’t consider that. What would it allow the patch routing to do?
As the refpage says, it sets a value without causing output, which is how you avoid stack overflows
that´s a cool definition of "backwards compatible".
