ObjectTools is a plugin that gives you a full suite of commands for managing an object. An object is like a BLOB, but instead of accessing the data by offset, you access each data item by name.
What can you store in an object? Any data type 4D has. What's more, you can directly access array elements within an object, remove individual items, and much more.

ObjectTools is the kind of tool that is of such general utility that its uses are virtually unlimited. Some common uses include:
