hi everyone!

thanks to the excellent pd documentation out there and lots of hand 
holding by friendly pd gurus on this list and elsewhere, here's my 
humble take at creating a theatre cue player with pd that does what i 
need... all the heavy lifting is done by august black's excellent 
readanysf~, thanks for making this tool available!

CueFrog is designed to be multi-instance capable, so you can create as 
many decks as your machine can handle, and makes use of lots of 
send/receive ports to simulate some kind of object-oriented 
encapsulation stuff, based on my (limited) understanding of a 
model/view/controller paradigm.

grab it: 

it's documented, so you should get it going in no time. i'm sure there 
are many quirks there, and i found out it's very easy to create race 
conditions in pd, so no warranties :)
comments and suggestions for improvements are most welcome.

i have a vbap-based panning automation in the works (which has already 
been used live at a theatre festival), but the code is in 
oh-my-good-tomorrow-is-dress-rehearsal shape, so forgive me for 
withholding it another month or so.

and before you ask: frogs are cute. and when the director makes me jump, 
i need tools that jump along :-D
