Try |s $1|. The send destination will be defined by the initialization argument
of the patch it's contained in. So if your |s $1| is saved inside a patched
called "peekaboo," and you then create on object |peekaboo iseeyou| the send
destination will be "iseeyou". You can also do |s $1too|. The send destination
in the above case would then be "iseeyoutoo".
Hope this helps,
