Thanks Miller. Looking at that example, this seems to be a way to open and
read in the whole file into C, which I could do, but the path of least
resistance for me so far has been to pass the actual loading to s7. Is
there a way to just get the full path for a file found from the Pd
filepath? (if not, I suppose I'll read the file in and the eval_string on
it or something...)
