[PD] [PD-announce] pd 0.43-1 test7 (!) available

If you look through the pd-l2ork C code, which is by and large near identical (at least in its core) to pd vanilla (except for comments I added while studying the code) you will find a few places where mainly due to the way pd handles GOP it is easier to simply catch a tcl/tk command than go through all the trouble of making sure the call is sane. The rest of the code contains a series of sanity checks I added and as such spews no tcl/tk warnings or errors. I suspect this would be trivial to merge with your code base.

Best wishes,

What you need is not as much error recovery as error reporting. Do 
whatever is necessary so that future bug reports are easier to make. For 
example, when a Tcl command fails, print the command that directly caused 
that error, even when -d is set to 0.

Isn't that what the [catch] command already does ?

But if anything prevents an item from being created, this will necessarily 
cause more errors later, for any tcl command that assumes that the 
creation command worked.
