- [0001-silence-DSP-error-when-autopatching.patch](https://sourceforge.net/p/pure-data/patches/564/attachment/0001-silence-DSP-error-when-autopatching.patch) (1.6 kB; text/x-diff)
Pd throws a (searchable) error whenever it encounters an illegal connection between a signal outlet and a non-signal inlet. great!
however, there are two use-cases where the error-message is not helpful and instead clutters the Pd-console with needless chitchat:
- when the destination object did not create for whatever reasons (which already gave us an "object not found" error)
- when we use the auto-patching feature (with DSP on), the error will be triggered everytime we create (<kbd>Ctrl</kbd>-<kbd>1</kbd>) a new object starting *from* a signal-object (regardless which object we actually create - as the error is thrown when the empty object box is created). this is especially annoying when doing live-coding.
luckily for us, the two use-cases can be fixed with a single bugfix (in a single line!), that just checks whether the destination object is a non-instantiated object (of `text_class`), in which case the error printout should be suppressed.
the attached patch (against current git HEAD) fixes the issue.
