     10Accessing an attribute of a particle set in memory currently returns a reference to the data:
     11{{{
     12x=particles.x
     13x[5]=5 | units.m
     14}}}
     15will change particles[5].x. This is not the case for remote particle sets; in this case a reference to a copy of the data is returned.
     16In older versions of AMUSE this was not the case: in memory sets also returned a reference to a copy. This is something to
     17be aware of (especially with older scripts).
