Summary
[edit]

The Null DAT has no effect on the data. It is an instance of the DAT connected to its input. The Null DAT is often used when making reference to a DAT network, allowing new DATs to be added to the network (upstream) without the need to update the reference.

An Operator Family that manipulates text strings: multi-line text or tables. Multi-line text is often a command Script, but can be any multi-line text. Tables are rows and columns of cells, each containing a text string.

The generic thing that holds an Operator, and includes Flags (display, bypass, lock, render, immune) and its position/size in the network. Whether you "lay down an Operator" or "lay down an Node", you're doing the same thing.
