maybe it's an often asked question. suddenly i couldn't find the topic in
the list.

is there a way to change sendsymbol of a [send]-object dynamically?

i'd like to create abstractions by messages. i know you can send messages
using a message-box like [; 'sendsymbol' 'message' bla bla]. the problem is
that i don't know the length of the messages. i tried that with a msg-box
like [; $1 $2 $3 $4 $5 $6 $7 $8$ 9] and let the messages into this box. this
works. also the patch, i created this way, works, but it's very ugly,
because the objects look like this: [metro 500 0 0 0] [bang 0 0 0 0].

[send] with right inlet would be nice.
