Hi Cycling 74,
With the risk of sounding completely stupid: I would really like to have access to the source code of [receive] and [send] and [pv]. I believe I have some useful additions to make which will make Max even more workable as an object-oriented programming language. The new features would mainly support to make new instances of subpatchers dynamically (without the troubles of poly~) and remote-controlling their in and outputs.
Right now I use a set of abstractions that do the trick, but since every abstraction depends on loadbangs and patcherargs and adds more loadtime, and I use dozens if not hunderds of them, well.. remaking them in C would be rewarding :)
If someone from Cycling '74 is interested I could make an example patch that illustrates what I mean. Could be like a prototype help file of the externals as I have them in mind where for now the externals are realized with abstractions.
