hi raul

i did some tests on mac osx a while ago. so far i can open pd and a 
patch from processing. i suppose the best way to do configurations 
(nogui) would be with the pd.app internal .plist but it would have to 
ignore the .plist in ~/Library/Preferences. I haven't tried the 
standalone approach in recent pd-extended yet. I guess it would be a 
good thing if the patch could controll as much as possible of the 
configurration for example the externals.

so we got windows and macosx working...

how about building apps for linux?


btw: could we change the topic? "make applications", "processing+pd" or 
"pd+processing standalone applications"

import com.apple.cocoa.foundation.*;

void setup() {
   String script = "do shell script \"open -a 
Applications/Pd-extended.app/Contents/MacOS/Pd-extended ";

   script = script+"/Users/pd/Desktop/testing/yoyo.pd\"";


void executeScript(String script) {
   NSAppleScript myScript = new NSAppleScript(script);
   NSMutableDictionary errors = new NSMutableDictionary();
