First, apologies for the non-working lua.pd_darwin part of the Makefile
- if someone has working commands, I'd appreciate them so I can add
them. I don't have a Mac to test.
I'm not 100% sure, but I think pdlua requires Lua 5.1. At least I had
weird problems with Lua 5.0...
One caveat about putting it somewhere in the Pd.app - the file pd.lua
needs to be in Pd's path so it can be found by the lua.pd_whatever
external. I usually just have:
Maybe I could take a leaf out of Mathieu's book and use the code from
GridFlow that finds itself and adds necessary things to Pd's path(s).
