pak object with "change" characteristics

November 15, 2009 | 9:21 pm

Hi All

Does anyone know of an object that works like the "pak" object but only outputs when an individual input is different to value that created the previous output?

This object would have to accept and recognise floats and symbols and well as integers.

Alternatively is it possible to use a combination of objects to achieve the same effect?

Any help on this would be really appreciated.

Is that data numerical? You could use "change" before the pak.

Dang, I’m slow….missed the second part "symbols"….

Perhaps a combination of [pak] and [zl change] will do the trick.

Using the set feature of "zl change" along with the "pak" object works perfectly.

Thank you for you help
