[PD] Newbie tcp/ip

Hi Guillermo,
You probably have to append a EOL indicator to the end of the messages you're 
sending. Otherwise proce55ing starts receiving data as a message but doesn't 
know where or when it ends and just keeps on receiving, thinking that it's 
still receiving the first message.

So what you do is use pack to pack everything into one unit (where the EOL 
stuff is the last element) then use a send message connected to netsend with 
a $ for each element in the pack, so it might look something like this:

send $1 $2 $3

Now this is all based on the assumption that I'm recalling everything 
correctly. I was trying to send something from a pd netsend to a pd 
flashserver recently and I think that's how I eventually got it to work.
