also consider using those objects that command line executions:
WINDOWS: [system] (in the "motex" library)
LINUX & OSX: [shell] (in the "ggee" library)
you can get them via deken ("Help/Find Externals")
since those objecs are very basic and the syntax can be tricky (PD
doesn't allow backslashes for example) my way of using them is to
compose/write the command i would type into a shell/terminal into a text
file, save it, and then call it from within PD using above objects.
(backslashes or other special characters can be emulated with [list
tosymbol], if that fails consider using [binfile] from "mrpeach")
with this method you can pretty much do anything inside a PD patch that
you would be doing in a terminal.
