hi peter,

...this is because your pd is not in an executable path, as set in your 
shell script...you can add the path to your "~/.tcshrc" by adding the 
line "set path = ( /path/to/pd $path )" and "source ~/.cshrc"
...otherwise, you'll just have to type the entire pathname along with 
any desired flags...

...tom has a binary release now for the latest pdp.darwin:


...grab pdp-0.12.1-bin-darwin.tar.gz and also have to grab the 
pdp-0.12.1.tar.gz, because that has the docs and examples and 
source...unfortunately, most of the examples won't work straight away, 
cuz they use pdp_xv and pdp_v4l, which aren't available on OSX...they 
can be switched out with pdp_glx and pdp_qt, but ya also have to change 
some other things to get fully working...good news, tho:  I'm making 
OSX versions, and should be able to up them tonight!

...also don't forget that you need to have libquicktime installed (via 
fink), and of course X11 (I use apple's)...there isn't a working 
version using native quicktime/windowing (yet)...
