[sel] with changeable arguments?


    Jun 13 2011 | 10:43 pm
    Looking for something like this-- Do I need to make it, or am I missing some functionality somewhere? Just looking to be able to use something like a 'set' msg to replace the arguments in [sel].
    Thanks, Brian

      If you give sel only one initial argument, you can send a message in the right inlet to replace it. It does not work with multiple arguments, though.

      Right, so there's no elegant way to bend some similar object to do that? I thought on it some & seems like a simple thing, but I couldn't think of a way that didn't involve making something...Thanks!

      Depending on the range of variables, [if] might be suitable here.

      It's a bit kludgy, but a string of [sel] objects might do what you want.

      Thanks...I invented something similar, but I figured as long as it was going to be kludgy, I might as well make it as functional as I could. I'll share it when it gets a little more tidy!

      [zl] can do it, you can have a list whose values can be changed, and incoming values can be compared to the list elements. good object to spend some time with anyways...
