It's the attribute (or dump) outlet that is common to many flext-based 
You can use it to query the state of an object... send [getattributes( 
to get a list of attributes (output through the dump outlet).
You may set an attribute "myattr" with [myattr value( into the leftmost 
inlet and query the value with [getmyattr(. At object creation you can 
set its value with [object arg1 arg2 arg3 @myattr value]
This syntax is derived from Max/Jitter where it is extensively used.
