Getting the double precision value of a signal

    Hi maxers,
    I'm trying to extract a specific double precision value from [gen~] for processing in Max (not MSP / as a signal)
    [Capture~] reports double precision values but has no outlet
    [snapshot~] and [number~] seem to truncate it to 6 digits.
    would jitter be a solution here? I can't seem to retain the precision using [jit.catch~] or [jit.poke~] example patch attached:

      Okay, discovered that [number~] only displays 6 decimal places even with numdecimal places set to maximum (9)
      However it still passes them through to a [flonum] and lands correctly into a matrix!
      Self answering thread - but here in case anyone has a similar question in future.
