how to assign a value to an attribute?
This is probably a beginner's question, but anyway:
A am playing with a mel command (colorAtPoint). Every time I execute this command (with all necessary switches and names) in Script editor, a value is returned. It has the following form (for example):
My problem is how do I feed this value to an attribute? (pCube.translateZ or pCube.rotateZ or whatever). I obviously can't use this command in a MEL script. Is it possible to get this value from Expression editor too?

I dont know how colorAtPoint works specifically, but there are a few ways
With any command that returns something, you can assign the return to a variable (string, float or int), like this
$value = `getAttr sphere.tx`;
and then use that variable when setting the attr value
setAttr cube.tx $value;
This can also be written in one line, without the variable
setAttr cube.tx `getAttr sphere.tx`;
