[PD] parsing the netreceive data

hi list,

i'm experimenting with netsend/receive and have a question about the 
data that is received.

on the machine where i have netsend i have messages like:

send valRed $1
send valBlue $1

where each send message gets numerical values.

on the machine where i have netreceive i have a print object.
which is correctly printing things like
valRed 145
valBlue 203

my stupid question is how do i parse this data to use it with objects?
i tried using a number atom and setting the receive symbol value to 
valRed, but it gets nothing.
i tried using unpack after the netreceive object eg.

[unpack s 0]

but then number changes when i vary valRed and valBlue

what's the right way to have objects on the receiving end use the 
values that are sent?
