avoiding space in messages

November 15, 2010 | 11:36 am

Hi all, it’s probably very simple. I have this problem since the beginning, it’s time to solve it. How do you have arguments in messages ($1) without a space between the value and the preceding text?
e.g. (set buffer $1) to create dynamic name for buffers

hi,

you can use sprintf.

To create a symbol with spaces inside, just enclose the text with "double quotation marks", otherwise max will treat it as a list.
