a sentence as one symbol


    Nov 17 2006 | 10:17 pm
    Hey all, I was wondering if it was possible to store a sentence as one
    symbol in a coll. In the below patch I want to separate the phrase "Player
    1 PB Speed" from the two numbers right after it but I want to do it in such
    a way that it comes out as one symbol. How can I do this?
    max v2;

      If you put "quotes" around your sentence you should be fine. So you would be sending the message 0 "Player 1 PB Speed" 2 122. There are a few different ways to get it done, but this would seem to be the most straight-forward.

      I actually figured out the quotation thing right after I sent the email
      (whoops!) But how do I remove the quotations after it gets send out coll as
      one symbol?
