Well, wrong in the sense that it is not the answer I want.  Of  
course, the problem could be in my
patch.  I would be very interested to see your solution, for my  
education.  Idiomatic Pd is not natural to me as I have been  
programming in lazy functional languages for more than 20 years!

I should mention though that it seems the [msgfile] object in the  
zexy library looks like it will do exactly what I want very directly  
with its [goto n( message.  (I'll just make a table translating marks  
to lines.)

Thanks for your help.
