Hi Rui,

If you have pd-extended, [moocow/any2bytes] will split the message into 
a list of single characters with a final character of your choice. Then 
[net/tcpclient] or [net/tcpsend] or [maxlib/netclient] can send them as 
a TCP packet to the receiving app.
(Maybe look into [pdlua] for more complex text processing.)
