 |hello again pd people, does anyone know how/if you can listen to the
 |messages that get sent to the pd object when you do editing on an open
 |pd canvas?  my brother has a really cool project in the works that he
 |needs to do this for, we've poked around a little and havn't seen
 |anything glaringly obvious.
 |i'm assuming that this is the way things work:  tcl/tk sends raw
 |controller info over a tcp pipe to the pd core, which then coverts that
 |into pd messages (actions like cut, select, select file menu, etc) ...
 |so, if i'm correct, is there a way to "sniff" those messages and use
 |them for my own neffarious purposes?
 |thanks again,
