Hi Krzysztof,

your rabin code does nearly exactly what I wanted to do! It safed me a lot of
work! My idea also was to 'clone' an abstraction to use several instances of
The only difference is that I need a control outlet. I got that far that I can
get the values sent to the outlet using an extra receive object. But I did not
manage to get it out of the objects outlet... Do you have any idea how this
could be done? I would try to create a second class within my object that
would behave like a receive object, something like:

class_new(gensym("liker"), NULL, NULL, sizeof(t_liker),

But maybe there is an easier solution to 'grab' the data that is send.

BTW, your code works with the current Pd version and compiled without trouble
on Win2k.
