Error DAT

Summary

The Error DAT lists the most recent TouchDesigner errors in its FIFO (first in/first out) table.

You can filter our messages using pattern matching on some of the columns like Severity, Type and path of the node containing the error. One column contains the absolute frame (absTime.frame) in which the error occurred.
