colon problem


is there a way to replace all the colon of a text with , ?
or to brace al the text with ” ” without loose the colons ( with [tosymbol] there’s no more colon after processing )

Terry McDermott’s regexp does not work on my computer ; maybe since i’m still with max 5 ?

it looks like it’s a max 5 thing _and_ a max 6 thing, but they’re different things — it’s also a max message-box with commas thing, and maybe a max implementation of regexp thing… and there’s also a difference between the print->max window representation and the message-box representation

here’s a patch I made in max 5

so freepoulite, you should probably get confirmation from c74 which is the right way to do it — there might be a better way that won’t be ambiguous– in the mean time I’d go with nicolas’ method (I suspect printing to the max window is a more accurate representation…)
