itoa grumble

May 11, 2010 | 1:48 pm

i’m using itoa to create sentences of text, but whenever there is a space (ascii value 32), quotation marks are put around the output. i don’t need or want this to happen because it means the text can’t be used as a command for something else. is there any way to remove these quotation marks?

thanks for all the help i’ve gotten on these forums so far. i promise to start contributing once i get better acquainted with the program.

Quotation marks around something mean that it’s a symbol. Look at the help patchers for the ‘tosymbol’ and ‘fromsymbol’ to better understand this. These are the objects you’ll ultimately need.
