What is the patcher.dirty method for?

    Hello,
    I see this example in the javascript help:
    p = this.patcher; p.fullscreen(1); // makes the patcher take up the whole screen p.dirty(); // make an editable patcher dirty
    What is the p.dirty method for? Does it have anything to do with the dirty property of any MacOS file? I don't understand...

      It sets the dirty property of a patcher (like sending the dirty message to thispatcher object), in opposition to clean. When a patch is "dirty" you can't close it directly, you need to save it (or not).
