yeah, I had the order wrong. It's actually ";pd open patch.pd /path/to".

The enclosing folder currently has to be a full path, as far as I know. At least I haven't been able to get it work with relative paths relative to the current active path's parent folder, which is the behavior I need for libpd where I want to keep projects separated within subfolders.
