compositeFor(nameStr):role(roleStr)

returns a List-type list of paths of all notes in the composite containing note nameStr, but including only the note or notes with the designated role roleStr. For example, to set the color of all notes with the role "author":

$MyList = $Color(compositeFor("great books"):role("author"))="red"; 

This code can also use the 'my' designator to give a shorter form. These are functional equivalents:

$MyList = compositeFor(this):role("some role"); 

$MyList = my:role("some role");
