pcount

pcount — Returns the number of pfields belonging to a note event.

Description

pcount returns the number of pfields belonging to a note event.

Syntax

icount pcount

Initialization

icount - stores the number of pfields for the current note event.

[Note] Note

Note that the reported number of pfields is not necessarily what's explicitly written in the score, but the pfields available to the instrument through mechanisms like pfield carry.

Examples

Here is an example of the pcount opcode. It uses the file pcount.csd.

The example will produce the following output:

The warnings occur because pfields are not used explicitly by the instrument.
