sinusoids~ help errors?? (and js..?)

hi

I am on a PPC mac (G4 1.5 gig) running OS X 4 7, and maxmsp 4 5 7

When opening the CNMAT helpfile for sinusoids~ (which i just
re-downloaded, 1.7.3 OSX CFM, right??)

I got errors:

*error : js: can’t find file shepherd.js

and then

*error : js : no function bang

and an infinite list of

*error : js : no function msg_float
*error : js : no function msg_float
*error : js : no function msg_float
*error : js : no function msg_float

????????? what should I do??? (I don’t know anything about js, i have to add)

many thanks for some help

best

kasper

I had the same problem – if I recall the js file is mis-named. Try
changing the name in the patcher object to ‘shepard.js’ instead of
‘sheperd.js’. Or change the file name…

Hope this helps.

hi

thanks

just before receiving your email, that’s what i did (in text mode) –
and yes, it works.

the strange thing (strange for me) is that both
*error : js : no function bang
and
*error : js : no function msg_float

disappeard (for *error : js: can’t find file shepherd.js it is normal)

the 3 things are related I understand – but do i understand well???
hummm some day I should learn java script (but for the moment I am in
OpenMusic, and was afraid that running both Max and OM could “hurt”
something – as it was he case, years ago with max and PatchWork)..

could soemone confirm the only problem was the name of the js. file??

mzed? ej??

thanks

kasper

It was only a naming problem and it is fixed in the current version.

We had some confusion early on between a “shepherd” — somebody who wrangles sheep, and Roger Shepard — the guy who invented a certain auditory illusion. One of our programmers is Austrailian, what can I say? But for now, there are no sheep-oriented CNMAT objects.
