Passing other max objects into your external?

Let’s say I have two externals that I have created. Would it be possible to send an instance of one of those externals into the other?
Furthermore, how does max handle the similar concept of shared objects (such as a [buffer~], accessed from a [waveform~])?

There is several ways to implement such things, you should have a look on :

- Sheep/shepherd example in the SDK ;
- Timothy Place great blog, specially :

Since max 6 SDK accessing to buffer~ is implemented with a different approach.

you might also find interesting the post that I wrote about some (at least at that time) undocumented aspects of globalsymbol-ing a year ago:
