[PD] sending midi notes as a string

hi Gary,

if running your tcl code from within the pd-gui process, the
easiest tcl command would be "pd mytarget 60 120 1 \;", while
having a [r mytarget] -> [noteout] in a Pd patch.  Tot might
prove handy for quickly checking things out -- prototyping the
real thing by sending "tot pd mytarget 60 120 1 .`.:" or
similar messages, to a [tot .] object.

Otherwise (e.g. when running a remote tcl process), one option
would be talking to [netreceive].
