actually the simplest way to find out is go and figure (this is - IMHO - 
one of the major strengths of pd: just try it)

objects are numbered as they are created, starting at 0.
so if you have an empty canvas, create an object [f] and then a message 
[1( you might want to connect them with something like "connect 1 0 0 0"
files are read line-by-line and these lines are executed, just like 
editing. (so the first object in the file will be object#0 too)

sub-patches restart counting.

i don't know about "using GUI".
