Max / Msp and Processing

Does anyone know how to open a .pde file within Max / Msp?

From what I understand Processing and Max are not compatible. Processing is like a simplified Java library, and while max can read Java files it does not support the Processing “Java” language.
Maybe if one was inclined they could write an interpreter object for Max?
Or you could always send serial data to and from your processing app and Max to control different aspects of both. It depends on what your trying to do.

There is no way you can load a .pde in Max. But there are some
ways you can integrate Processing with Max. Here are some
of the options…

MaxLink: is apparently a java class that will load processing sketches in Max.
I have not tested this.

Processing.js: is a port of processing to javascript
This might work in Max. Have not tested it.

OSC: not the greatest resolution but might be the easiest way
to integrate Max and Processing.

no way will processing.js work in max, except as viewed through a jweb object.

That would be a very interesting experiment to see if that would work.
