nope. pattern matching does not work this way around. only incomming  
osc messages can have wildcards.

perhaps an object - i name it [OSCmatch] - would be better for my  
application. arguments would be a single OSC pattern and the outlets  
could be $1 the first partial match, $2 the second, ..., $n the rest  
of the osc message with the arguments. much like regular expressions.  

/4/pitch 33
[OSCmatch /*]
|           |
|           /pitch 33


/table/3/8/store 34.2
[OSCmatch /table/*/*]
|         |         |
3         8         store 34.2

thank you, this sort of works. but the problem is the rest of the osc
