Hi Günter, hi list,

I didn't expect you from removing your external, far from that. I wrote
this "concat" as an exercise. It is not as polyvalent as yours. I
apologize if I have been unclear about this. Now, please put it back for
the benefits of the community.

Maybe there is also an other regular expression matching external ? It
is not easy to find our way through all the classes that are hidden in
libraries. The Pure Data Base is all right, but still, there is no class
browser, for what no know, that has been implemented into the main
branch of PD. Not yet. So, I didn't know this class existed and I wrote
my version.

For sure, I will take time to read a bit more about the CVS system, this
repository content and I will grep through the .pd_linux to see what
does and does exist before to upload anything.

All right ?

Note that I am also working on a "jazz" and a "jam" externals to parse
chord and play over them. Should I avoid these names for some reason ?
