Hi Ingo,
I'm a newbie to Pd, using purr-data on Linux. I put together a patch:

[makefilename C%c]
[print C-sharp]

and it seems to work OK for me.
See attached screen-shot.
(slight difference, I connected the symbol box in parallel, rather than 
but I don't see that matters. I haven't worked out how to show that 
using Ascii-art.)
