moin Jerome,

you could use [any2string] to map a symbol to a list of float values,
and then use [string2any] to map those values back onto single-character
atoms... I believe the [pdstring] objects are in pd-extended; otherwise
they're available in sourceforge cvs or from me:


... Martin Peach's [str] utilities can do all of this a wee bit more
elegantly, but require that you patch your pd sources.
