Hey Luke,

Too bad you lost it! Happens to the best of us!

Was it this xcode tutorial you used?


I will take a look at this because for me this would be extremely useful. Probably will not get a chance to take a look until next week though.

One thing - if indexing plain-text will it index everything in a patch? can it exclude stuff like "#N canvas 540 610 118 149 10;", "#X obj 8 63", "#X obj 10 64", etc. or does it even matter do you think....

Yeah i was looking into this last night and thought "hey someone on the pd list MUST have done this already"... guess i was right!
