How to open an auto-crashing patch?

I believe I coded a closed loop into a patch, and now Max automatically crashes when I try to load it.
Is there a way I can open the patch without running it, so I can edit it before it closes itself down?
Thanks

If it’s a loadbang issue:
press command+shift while your open the patch on Mac, ctrl+shift on
windows. This will disable the loadbang.

You can also manually edit the patches in a text editor with some cases, just be careful and make a backup.
