[phasor~] ([osc~], and probably other objects too) seems to be aware of signals being connected to its left-most inlet. Providing an argument to [phasor~], if there's no signal coming in its inlet, it will use its argument for the frequency. As soon as a signal is connected, it will use that signal for its frequency. As soon as this signal gets disconnected (even if the signal is 0), [phasor~] will go back to using its argument for its frequency.
Reading [phasor~]'s code in d_osc.c, I can't understand how this is achieved. I thought of looking into canvasconnections.c from the iemguts library, but it's a bit too complicated for me. Still, there's this comment in that file: /* as Pd does not have any information about connections to inlets, * we have to find out ourselves * this is done by traversing all objects in the canvas and try * to find out, whether they are connected to us! */ Does this have to do with control inlets only? How can [phasor~] know if it's receiving a singal in its frequency inlet? _______________________________________________ Pdfirstname.lastname@example.org mailing list UNSUBSCRIBE and account-management -> https://lists.puredata.info/listinfo/pd-list
