in Mel, How Would I write to identify if an object is existent or not in a scene

Here is the question I would like answered in the scene:

Does this object exist, YES or NO?

example: if in my scene I have an object named "bobo", How would I write a script (so I can have a return true or false) too see if it REALY exist in the scene?

Hope I<M making some sence

thanks later jack

not entirely sure what you mean....

objExists("myObject") returns 1 if myObject exists or 0 if it doesn't....

I don't quite get what you mean when you say:

"example: if in my scene I have an object named "bobo", How would I write a script (so I can have a return true or false) too see if it REALY exist in the scene?"

How could it exist, but not REALLY exist?

Depending on what further actions you want there are many ways to check the existence of an object in the scene, but they most likely include the `objExists` command.

// This returns 1 if true 0 if false
int $obj = `objExists "bobo"`;

//Another Approach
string $name = "bobo";
if (`objExists $name`)
{
print "Hello bobo!\n";
}
if (!`objExists $name`)
{
print "bobo is not here\n";
}

Hope this helps
