Do you have any example for what exactly you want to do? I've never
heard of this "fluke" thing and searching the web for that term
yielded no useable results as fluke is a common word.

Gem can generate graphics at the usual 20/25 fps, which already is
much faster than a club stroboscope - and it's much faster than
loading websites, too.

Popular choices for scripting languages in Pd include Lua and Python.
Both can (be made to) talk to network services over a socket
connection or even http. You can also use Java with pdj, if that
suits you better, or Scheme etc.
