hi thomas,

ok, for these compability/speed issues i think MSVC is the choice (after 
all) for me/newbie on win32...
with dev-c++ i got many "linker" errors to "commands" in 'm_pd.h', so i 
quess its not compatible with that compiler... hmm, as dev-c++ can use gcc 
i could... too much work. i change to msvc...

btw. in what os/compiler is PD made originally (by miller) ?

ps. sorry for my stupid comments/questions, i'm a fresh c/c++ newbie going 
way 2 fast :)
