whilst patching with the folder object, i noticed the messages it outputs come out in an unexpected order.
when folder object is sent a path, it outputs the following messages:
left output: clear, filename #1, filename #2, filename #3 (etc... until no more files)
right output: int (number of items at path location)
the strange thing is it outputs in left to right order, as opposed to the conventional right to left order. so the left output will come out first, then the number of items out the right outlet.
now i'm wondering whether this is normal behaviour, or a bug... i would assume it would be more useful to have the number of items first, then the list of files out the left???
any insights appreciated...
