interesting, and surely a pretty useful tool. Checking the results of some of
my own [list]-abs help-files, I'm happy to see only two unexpected errors (a
third one is deliberate). However these two should not be reported as errors:
It's about [list-abs] not created, while list-abs.pd is just a simple
abstraction in the [list]-abs collection and lives right next to the respective
help-files. So it should have no problems loading and there definitely are not
problems on a standard Pd.
