[sc-dev] [propose] Dictionary:embedInStream



Here's an unnecessary gotcha:

embedInStream { arg event;
^yield(event !? { event.copy.putAll(this) })
}

So if I have a ListPattern where the list is an array of Events, I want the stream to output just the events, no mussing about. Instead, I have to pass in an empty protoevent... huh?

May I propose?

embedInStream { arg event;
^yield(if(event.notNil) { event.copy.putAll(this) } { this })
}

Or maybe you need this.copy in the else branch.


OK?
