Thanks again for a terrific toy, Tom.
Just a few ideas which might make it even cooler. Embrace or disregard
them as time allows...
1) Ability to make multiple instances of the viewing window instead of
one master window.
2) Ability to nest seperate windows in patches, or even graph-on-parent.
3) Ability to label each track in the window(s?), either statically by
array-name, or dynamically with the pathname of the file loaded [from
4) Of course, eventual multiplatform support would be nice, so people
like Frank could use it in their end-user-oriented patches such as the
About the keybindings:
I was just playing with the keybindings for getting the array position
and length of the mouse selection from the window, and I find it
wonderful. It was almost effortless to figure out how to assign a
different keybinding to each track in the window (via [route x], [route
y], [route q], etc....] I am curious, however, why I cannot see the
contents of the packed message coming directly out of the [route]
object. Common sense would tell me that the output would be a compound
messsage of position and length, but a [print] object still only gives
me the key event, and not the numbers. Why is that?
