How intelligent is messnamed call?

Hi, can anyone or c74 comment on this?

Does it still go through the send/receive mechanism and incur switches to from js/max or is it smart enough to know if js objects are on the end of the receiver and call the js directly assuming it is connected directly to the receive max?

thx Lee

Are you trying to send a message from a send object to js? Last time I tried, you can not receive from within a js.

No, you can’t. But theoretically, a receive object knows if it has a js object attached to an outlet, as can the autopattr, so a messnamed call might be able to determine that and then directly call the js with the message.. Just hypothesing…. I’m just thinking efficiency more than anything
