A good idea IMO - although I would prefer Python as in
http://www.pure-data.org/Members/fbar/tools/pdsender.py/view which I
find easier to learn as well and you could even run it inside Pd. I
would run it outside, though.
Pd's own string handling capabilities are *very* limited. In a more
text oriented full programming language like Python you get a lot of
support for string handling, maybe you'll even find a binding directly
