[PD] zexy

when you run pd, you can send various parameters to it to tell it how to
behave.  these are called command line arguments or parameters.  type in
'pd -help' in the command prompt to see a list.
in order to tell pd to use the zexy library, use the '-lib' command, or put
all arguments in a batch file (a text file with the extension .bat) and run
that.  there are plenty of examples of peoples' command line argument
settings on their respective webpages.

firstly - I'm not sure it's a good idea to run pd from within 'program
files', I know there was an issue with spaces in the folder names a while
ago, not completely sure.  best be safe and move whole thing to c:\pd (!)
then run:

pd -path c:\pd\zexy -lib zexy

this should enable zexy objects to load.  if you want the help patches to
appear when you right click on them and press help, I managed this by
putting the help patches in doc\5.reference\zexy\   but I'm not too sure on
the rules of how it finds these.

good luck

the zexy.dll is in C:\Program Files\pd\zexy
what do you mean by the fact that I should use the "-lib zexy" argument ?
