hi IOhannes, others,
maybe you did not need, because you knew, it was not possible...
I posted just the same thing on sunday night (never post something on 
weekend, if you want that it be read by the "special task forces" (...)
you need that kind of characters for dynamic created patches and in 
connection of pd with other programs.
The handling of some characters in messages is really a pain. for some
externals I need to create messages, which should output $0, $1 and so on.
of course there are work arounds. but easier would be to have an escape
character like $ or whatever.
today I needed to produce the character combination \, (backslash followed
by a comma). which I needed for dynamical creation of a special object in
thanks for help.
