'View' menu-> 'Parameters' & 'Dependencies' (docs?)

I’m unable to find where in the docs it would describe more about the ‘Parameters’ and ‘Dependencies’ items in the ‘View’ menu of Max5.

I can see that ‘Parameters’ deals with scriptingnames and shortnames(M4L), but how do I use that window? what’s it for? and also, where can I find more information on the different labels, for example, under the ‘Type’ column within that window, I sometimes get ‘Blob’ as a type. What is a ‘blob’ or why is it called that? (seems maybe a ‘blob’ might be a larger abstraction(bpatchers, etc.) named with a scriptingname but i’m not sure…)

and I have the same basic questions about ‘View’->’Dependencies’ (what’s it for? how is it useful?)

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide(i searched on the forums but found nothing).

oh snapz! it’s M4L specific! now i see… ok, that was my problem in searching the docs(i’m using many of the M4L things in a standalone, not in Live, hence my confusion)

thanks so much, Ben!

@C74
Hello, this hyperlink:
http://www.cycling74.com/docs/max5/vignettes/core/live_parameter.html
goes nowhere.
We can find it at:
http://www.cycling74.com/docs/max5/vignettes/core/live_pattr.html#parameter_mode_enable
(clic on “parameter” in Enabling Parameter Mode)
