i've had this this problem as well; basically what i'd like
is an "interpreter" object that feeds its inlet to stdin
and passes stdout to its outlet, 'shell' didn't work for
me, either :-(

i've tried this too; the thing is, i'm lazy and would like to
be able to control the whole complex from within pd; as it is,
i have to start the 'netreceive | my-interpreter | netsend'
pipeline by hand, which can be a pain in the wazoo.

maybe i'll actually get around to writing such a wrapper
once my interpreter gets fixed up a bit ;-)
