I'm using pd-0.41.0-test05.
The messages documented in http://dh7.free.fr/pd-msg/pd-msg_05.tar.gz
aren't working for me.
the [saveto( message kills pd, with or without an argument. I'm
guessing this is the message that would solve my problem. Has anyone
used it in the past?
Is this msg documentation still applicable to 0.41.0-test05?
