'ncase anyone is interested.  ongoing work with this external.  basically,
I use pd for various things and need a similar interface to different

an almost beta version is at:


the only known bug at the moment is that if you try and remove one of the
readanysf~ objects from the canvas, something is likely to explode.

this has something to do with how flext handles threading, i think, but am
not sure.

is there something like a pthreads_join in flext?  i think that would

ShouldExit() and StopThreads() simply doesnt do it for me.


	pcm and time seeking
	looping (internally and should be sample accurate)
	plays  aiff, wav, nextstep (same code as readsf~ with 16,24
	and 32bit float support) plus vorbis and mp3 (using madlib)

near future:
	add flac support (anyone have a good simple flac code?)
	conifigure and make scripts 

distant future:
	http streaming (perhaps)
	convert to pure c++ without flext if i cant get flext to work
	with the threading.  would be a shame.

any suggestions?  -tsugua.
