conjugal symbols

  Actually, there is a way if you have GEM.

  There is an object called strcat which was made to do exactly this
(although the implementation is a little strange...)

  Make an object "strcat foobar"  Then, every message which is passed
into the inlet will be appended to the foobar string.  So for instance,
if you had a message box with "symbol dog", it would output foobardog.

  Be aware that numbers are floating point and they end up being
_really_ long numbers (with lots of zeros).  This is because they used
to be ints and the code never changed.
