Lformat? Scramble?

October 14, 2007 | 11:01 am

I’m resurrecting some patches from years ago (Max 3 days), and have run across some "orphaned" externals.

Lformat doesn’t appear to be part of the Lobjects collection anymore (though it still appears in the documentation), and there doesn’t seem to be a direct replacement, either. Hunted around some and can’t find any mention of this change, nor does there seem to be a direct replacement.

James McCartney’s scramble (very useful, btw) seems to be one of the few List Ops not to have been turned into a zl mode. Karlheinz Essl has a scramble replacement (as part of his RTC-lib), but it’s an abstraction rather than an external.

Anyone know if there are any externals out there that will replace these two? There used to be a "random-permut" that did more or less the same thing as scramble, but that’s long gone too.

Thanks,

Charles.

Scramble is now part of Gary Nelson’s Random Library

mac….

Awesome! Thanks Don!

Kasper: Sorry, I should have mentioned that I’m on an Intel Mac, so I’m looking for Universal Binaries. You’re right, there is an OS X version of the original external.

Which is a big advantage, you never have to worry about updates for the
next decades of Max it will work in Max 5, Max 6 and Max 10. It will
even pass to the new 100 THz poxel processors of the year 2089 without
problems…

I’d always prefer an abstraction over an external even if I’ve written
it myself… ;-)

I also made a abstraction as part of the CNMAT MMJ Depot:

it works as well as an external.
