please don't explain the syntax of toggle or the _language_ pd!

just add a |r sync-waende-vertikal-send|->|print|
in parse_sync2_1 behind the |r $1-send| another print object ...
(to make shure, do this in a running patch, don't save the abstraction)

inside the abstraction you will receive a |1( message from

in fact, this patch _is_ more complicated ... i broke this out of a more
complicated patch ... i deleted a huge stuff to make track down the
problem ... and to make shure, there is not some kind of error, coming
from somewhere else in the patch!!!

if you follow the logic of the abstraction, (parse_sync2_1) you will
see, that if the second argument's send is 1 and $1-send (from the tgl),
a message |0( will be sent to $1-rec (to the tgl).
this will send the |0( to $1-send ... but there is the problem! ... the
last message arriving at $1-sen is a |1(

cheers ... tim
