since this is a very frequently asked question, i offer an infrequently
proposed answer, just to spice things up.

in the case of a fixed number of arguments, you can use a message

[; x $1 (

is the same as

[send x]

(if you only ever send one argument into the send, ie, not a list)

so you could do

[pack s f]
[; $1 $2 (

to send the float to the receive named by the symbol..

... are my 3am musings understandable to anyone but me?
