[PD] PD "Projector", Executables or similar

What kind of functionality are you actually looking for? I think most visual
libs will cause audio glitches so you may need to have two PDs running
simultaneously communicating to one and other.

There are libs such as PDP-PiDiP (2D video centric) Gem (OpenGL centric)
Gridflow (2D/ matrix centric). This may not all run on all PD OSs!

Good luck.
