Just found the following very perplexing directories listed by Pd’s “About Pd” window. I re-downloaded 0.48-2 and saw a similar listing. The paths are accurate and can be navigated in the terminal. This appears to be the result of macOS AppTranslocation, and probably a headache to deal with, but I can’t imagine that this display is useful to users in its current state:

Pd 0.49.0

A real-time graphical programming environment for live interactive
computer music, Pd works on Linux, Apple macOS, and Microsoft Windows.
