Also, it sounds like you are coming from a standard programming
background. Pd works differently, so you don't really think about
variables so much, but rather messages and how they flow.
Here's a quick summary of $ vars:
- In an object box, $ vars represent the creation arguments of that
patch. (You can see the creation arguments at the top of the patch's
window, next to its filename)
- In a message box, $ var represent the elements of a list that that
message box receives.
But yeah, you should read or reread those docs.
