If you don't mind a little compilation, I wrote an object called
midiopen that opens a midi file and dumps the data to its outlet.
Check out the SVN repo with

svn checkout http://pdhmm.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ pdhmm

if you're on linux you should be able to compile it just by typing "scons"

it's still pretty preliminary, but it should work on most midi files
that don't have any SysEx messages in them.

One of these days I'll clean it up and perhaps add it to pd-extended.
