jes, but we can't try out anything of course before the basic connect
works. and then i might be able to fiddle with the formatting part of
the code, or do i underestimate the effort?
unfortunately the netsend/receive objects to not come with standad max
release ...
maybe you can talk to suzuki-san (the author) directly about sources for
the max-ns/r and any formatting stuff, i ll forward the subject ...

ok, few more things connected to the same matter:
still, how about sending signals over the net? uncompressed at first
(LAN application), and furthermore, guenther, any news on the mp3 stuff?
i also talked to chris penrose about a week ago, he said he was working
on some sort of
mpeg objects for max, and since it takes far less crunch to
realtime, he's using layer-2 for this. maybe this/he can
help(s) ...
still i think it would be great to have a "wc" object in pd.
this too only works in max at moment, its a chatlike protokoll and very
useful to dispense/broadcast the same information over the net to many
clients ... there is a server and a VERY simple cl.client for unix/linux
but i do not feel too confident about converting all the mac related
network-shit involved in this object to unix side ...

please, any thoughts welcome ...
