t_jit_gl_drawinfoT_jit_gl_drawinfo struct used for tasks such as multi texture unit binding
t_jit_glchunkT_jit_glchunk is a public structure to store one gl-command's-worth of data, in a format which can be passed easily to glDrawRangeElements, and matrixoutput
t_jit_matrix_infoMatrix information struct
t_jit_mopT_jit_mop object struct
t_jit_mop_ioT_jit_mop_io object struct
t_jit_op_infoProvides base pointer and stride for vector operator functions
t_jmatrixAn affine transformation (such as scale, shear, etc)
t_jrgbA color composed of red, green, and blue components
t_jrgbaA color composed of red, green, blue, and alpha components
t_line_3dLine or line segment in 3D space (GLfloat)
t_linklistThe linklist object
t_llelemA linklist element
t_matrix_conv_infoMatrix conversion struct
t_messlistA list of symbols and their corresponding methods, complete with typechecking information
t_objectThe structure for the head of any object which wants to have inlets or outlets, or support attributes

t_rectCoordinates for specifying a rectangular region
t_signalThe signal data structure
t_sizeCoordinates for specifying the size of a region
t_stack_splatFor passing on the stack in method calls (no need for struct packing here, since flat array)
t_stringThe string object
t_symbolThe symbol
t_symobjectThe symobject data structure
t_tinyobjectThe tiny object structure sits at the head of any object to which you may pass messages (and which you may feed to freeobject())
t_wind_mouse_infoT_wind_mouse_info_struct provided by jit.window and jit.pwindow mouse events
t_zllA simple doubly-linked list used by the t_funbuff object
wordUnion for packing any of the datum defined in e_max_atomtypes
