If you want to put one number in a symbol, you can use [makefilename]
I think you can also use %s in the makefilename pattern to put symbols
into a string, and you can use "set" messages to chain makefilenames
together. makefilename is a Pd internal.
If you want to turn a list of symbols and floats into a symbol, then
there is [list2symbol] in the zexy library.
list of stuff to join
| symbol to put between them at the join
If the left inlet is "list a 2 c" and the right inlet is "symbol -" then
the outlet gives "symbol a-2-c".
