Hi all,

is there a straightforward way to assign values to symbols and
dereferencing them in pd?

I think of something like a hash table or some other sort of
lookuptable for key/value pairs (the key part being a symbol, the
value part being an arbitrary pd datatype) in a way that you could
dereference them in a similar fashion as in a tabread object
(specifying that symbol table as argument and retrieving the current
value of the symbol in the outlet by sending the symbol name to the

I know it's possible to mimick that with send receive pairs and
routes, but I would like a more elegent way to solve this.
