in max, there is no [t a] in the Pd's sense. It is not as badly
needed as in Pd, because one can use multiple connections and rely
on the right-to-left order of execution.
In Pd, the simplest meaning of 'bang' -> [t a] would be, I think,
to get an output of a 'bang', but

I cannot understand the rules of bang <-> empty list conversion in
Pd... I will try hard still, but if there is any simple clue, I
would be grateful to know it...

this was checked in max 4.0.7 (and is consistent with what is
written in the reference manual): 'bang' -> [t l] gives 'list 0'
in max -- which may be checked with [route list] sending via
the left outlet...
Btw, one can use constant args too: 'bang' -> [t llwybr] gives
'llwybr' in max, 'bang -> [t 99] gives '99', etc.
