    This is in the help reference for zl. What does it mean?

      isnt it "1" with "2", "3", "4", "5", and "6" as arguments? that is how [printit] sees it.

      @vanille béchamel is correct, if you write js, mxj or C code you'll have a list method which will get the arguments: 1 2 3 4 5 6.

      Thanks, that does help. I can't remember seeing the word "method" used in the documentation but it makes sense to me that any symbolic names can be considered as referring to a "method of the object". This sort of thing is often described in a language reference but Max documentation doesn't seem to do it that way.
