Shell Command to Launch Max Standalone

June 19, 2012 | 5:12 pm

Hi, y’all–

I’m trying to write a Max Standalone for both OS X and Windows that can be launched via a shell command. The tricky part now is getting commands to Max objects at launch, such as telling it from where to load some control data. I need to be able to have something like this:

open -a /Applications/StandaloneApp.app  /Users/username/Directory/data_folder

open the app and send the path to the data folder to an object (a umenu, in this case).

Any suggestions?

Thanks!
