thanks for the tip about strcat. This works - as long as i use symbols as
arguments and not numbers. and this is ok for what i'm doing, so a big

the main difference between strcat and makefilename is that you can't write
something like "makefilename $1%s" - although Miller tells me this will soon
be possible. Within an abstraction, strcat allows you to place a $1 type
argument within it. - i've then been using loadbang connected to a "symbol
$2" object to feed the second argument into the "strcat $1". -> problem

thanks, iain
