How to write a binary file ?

April 17, 2014 | 8:05 am

Well I don’t really understand how it is even possible but in Max/Msp there is the object [filein] but not [fileout] I tried with [Text] object but It doesn’t like ANSI so for my project I can’t do anything with it. I read is it possible to write binary file with Javascript inside Maxmsp but I’m really bad with it. I tried to find an Object searching Maxobject.com but nothing useful, that’s strange that nobody seems intersted by that basic function :/ Did I missed something?

There are many kinds of binary file. What are you trying to write?

for me there is just one type of binary writing, the one which allow you to write byte by byte a file, I mean all I was searching for is a way to write a file like that, since I’ve find a another solution to my problem, (by changing the langage of my software avoiding it use special caracter)

but it’s not normal that I can’t use that way with a software like Max/Msp if they have [filein] they do have at least [fileout] that’s not serious at all :((

Be cursed Cycling74 you don’t do what I’m dreaming for :(

You can write binary files using Javascript.

AS I’ve already said, I kno< that javascript is able to do that, my question still, why a powerful envirronement like max msp dosen’t allow you with one object to create a file byte by byte, that’ss stupid :(
