Summary
[edit]

The UDP In DAT is used for receiving information over a UDP connection between two remotely located computers. It captures all the messages without any queuing or buffering, and allows you to send it any messages you want. Once this DAT has received a message it can reply to the sender using the 'send' command. Using the send command before it has received a message will not work because it doesn't know where to send data yet. When in multicast mode it doesn't send out a multicast message, it sends a reply directly to the originator for the last multicast message it got.

See also UDP Out DAT, Touch In DAT and TCP/IP DAT.

NOTE for Windows OS - If experiencing connection issues make sure Windows Firewall is disabled.

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.
