if it's a matter of using a ready made external object, cyclone/tosymbol
If you want a pd vanilla patch that does the same, check else/any2symbol
the key is to use vanilla's [list fromsymbol] and [list tosymbol] and
hopefully you'll see what I mean and figure it out.
anyway, really really looking forward to your external, it'll be a huge
game changer :)
best of luck
