Hello all in list-land,

         Part of my undergrad thesis is a little paper on Max-type language 
(Max, Pd, jMax) patch design methodology. Things like how to go about 
designing effective patches, design rules that make debugging easier, patch 
organisational models, etc. The aim of the paper is to come up with a set 
of rules for designing "effective" patches, as a guide for beginners and 
also as a set of tips for seasoned users.

         I've been recently codifying my own methods for the paper. And any 
thoughts, tips, or insight that any of you can offer about your own methods 
and practises would be greatly appreciated.
