g/s (get) ?

    This is probably one of those ultra-dumb questions, like "where are my glasses?" when you're already wearing them, but here goes...
    What does "g/s (get)" mean in the Max 7 documentation, e.g. in the explanations of several of the attributes at https://docs.cycling74.com/max7/maxobject/jit.movie ?

      g/s (get) is ultra-dumb way of describing attributes which can be used to set and get properties, even though there is enough place in reference to write it in plain understandable text. From what I undesrstand, g/s means You can get and set the atributes as arguments or using attrui. Same attribute, like for example movie_dim packed in a message getmovie_dim outputs movie dimensions on dump output. Stupid little detail is that attrui displays it as dim only ... movie_dim and moviedim make no difference, lucky me I don't care much about max reference... I hope I won the vaporware https://docs.cycling74.com/max7/tutorial/jitterchapter00b_whatareattributes

      Ah, thank you very much, Source!
      If I squint a bit and look sideways that kinda makes sense, so I'll have a play around with it. I hope you enjoy your well-deserved vapourware or, at least, the perpetual anticipation thereof. And btw, I found my glasses.
