Output Ports



For example, if this feature enters the transformer:

somelist{0}.length             = 7.3

somelist{0}.kind             = ’paved’

somelist{1}.length             = 8.4

somelist{1}.kind             = ’smooth’

somelist{1}.lanes             = 2

somelist{2}.length             = 1.1

somelist{2}.kind             = ’rough’

and the somelist{}.kind list attribute is searched for the value smooth, then the index attribute would be set to 1.
