vj.filepather Abstraction allows a user to dump a bunch of files in a named folder and have those files automatically loaded to Max's temp search path when the patch is loaded
allows a user to dump a bunch of files in a named folder and have those files automatically loaded to Max's temp search path when the patch is loaded
bogus External non-existent object
The bogus object is created when Max cannot find the definition of an object in a patch being read from a file. The object has as many inlets and outlets as are needed to preserve existing connections, in case the name of an object has changed or the file that defines the object can be moved to a folder where Max can find it. You can retype the name to try to recreate the object again.
conformpath External Convert paths of one pathtype and/or pathstyle to another
conformpath can be used to convert paths between the old colon style format and the new slash style--these are the "pathstyles". It can also be used to conform paths to either absolute, relative, boot volume relative, or Cycling 74 folder relative--these are the "pathtypes". The "max" style will use whatever style the currently running version of Max uses to pass paths between objects. The "native" style will use whatever format is used by the currently running operating system to specify paths. There is only an explicit "native_win" pathstyle since the native Macintosh pathstyle is the same as the "colon" path style. Note that when working with native paths, only absolute paths will be valid for the operating system. The default pathstyle is "max", and the default pathtype is "ignore".
createfolder External create a folder in the file hierarchy
create a folder in the file hierarchy, also on other volumes than the bootvolumes also allows using unicode characters in the pathname (accents etc)
EnvVar Javaclass (mxj) get environment variables and system infos as strings.
returns common environment variables (i.e TEMP, windir, HOMEPATH),and less common ones (VSTfolder, C74_COMMON...)
exists External test for the existence of a file or folder
test for the existence of a file or folder-- return file type, finder flags & creator info
f0.folder Abstraction wrapper for the standard [folder] object. easily connects to coll, umenu and msgbox
fidget External fidget provides an interface to Phidgets – physical widgets, available from Phidgets Incorporated.
fidget provides an interface to Phidgets – physical widgets, available from Phidgets Incorporated. The fidget object uses a folder named ‘Phidgets’, located in the same folder as the Max program, to provide a collection of ‘plugins’ for device-specific behaviours.
filedate External Reports modification date of file
The filedate object takes the complete filepath of a file or folder and outputs the modification date.
filepath External Manage file searching, file path
The filepath object is used in the File Preferences patcher to report and change the various folders Max uses to look for files at certain times.
filesys Javaclass (mxj) Remove, copy or rename a file, check for existence of a file. Remove and create directories.
This Java class understands 5 messages:
- rm to delete a file or an empty folder;
- mv to move a file to a new destination or change its name.
- exists to to check the existence of a file.
- mkdir to create a new directory.
- cp to create a copy of a file.
filewatch External Notify Max of a file change.
The filewatch object reports when a file or folder -- specified by name (in the search path) or by complete path -- changes.
folder External List all the files of a certain type in a certain folder
folder can fill a menu object with the names of files in a folder. You can specify the folder as an argument or by sending a symbol with the name in it. The forward-slash character / is used as a path delineator. An initial slash at the beginning of a path indicates the boot volume. The Max application folder is referred to by using period-slash (e.g.: "./max-help"). On Windows a path may be preceded by a drive letter (e.g.: "C:/Documents/joe/Desktop/phase_vocoder.pat").
folderiter External iterative file searching
fpic External Display an image file in a box
fpic is a user interface object which reads in an image file and displays the picture in a box. It behaves identically to pictures pasted into a patcher window with the Paste Picture command, but avoids the hassles of saving pictures into patcher files. To read in a new picture, you can either use the read or readany messages (shown below) or select the image file from the object's inspector (Get Info... in the Object menu). The object's box will not be resized after the file is read in, because some image files may have ridiculously sized boxes. By default the picture is always drawn at 100%. The name of the last image file read in and the current box size are saved in the patcher file, so the picture should read in automatically if the file is located in the same folder as the patcher or elsewhere in the search path.
