Grasshopper series of articles-understanding basic data types

This list is all about the basic parameter types (there is no specific shape of data, such as integers). It takes some time for everyone to memorize these parameter types.

Boolean:

Boolean value indicates two states of yes or no, such as judging whether the point is online, whether the curve is closed, etc.

Data Path:

Data path is a very, very important concept in Grasshopper, which will be introduced in detail in later courses, here is a brief understanding of what is data path.

The character pointed by the arrow in the figure below is the data path {0} means that the following data are all under the path 0 {0; 0; 1} means that the data of 1 is under the path {0; 0; 1}

File Path:

The function is to obtain some external documents such as rhino files or some table files.
