Get varname





Varname can be the name of any inlet, outlet or state variable in any transform. It can also be the variable name used by one or more Put transforms as well as other Get transforms. The scope of the name is relative to the current patch unless it begins with a "/" character.

When the variable varname changes (e.g., its an inlet that just received a new value, and outlet that was updated, or the destination of a Put transform), the Get transform emits the new value via its outlet. Using Get and Put together allows data to be transmitted without connections, even between separate patches.

The getvar can be used to dynamically change the variable being monitored by a particular Get transform.
