There are five concurrent things that may be called objects in pd.
There's t_pd, the set of all receivers; the concept of method is defined
at this level.
There's t_gobj, "graphical object", that includes anything that can appear
in a canvas.
There's t_object (aka t_text), that includes anything that has inlets and
outlets and then some more (comments...).
There's Ctrl+1, a Put menu item for making "Object". This excludes
comments, floatbox, symbolbox, messagebox.
Then there are the object classes that don't use special representations.
If you type "bng" in a Ctrl+1 box, you get a bang button, not an ordinary
If you create an Array from the Put menu, then create a [s] to the
receive-symbol of the array, you can send messages, and if I send the
message "zzz", I get :
error: array: no method for 'zzz'
array is the classname of the object you just sent to.
