aka.datagram for 64-bit systems


    Jan 06 2019 | 11:31 pm
    Hey all. I've been avoiding the 64-bit jump entirely, but just upgraded to Max 8 (not to mention the impending macOS changes) so I'm now finally looking into converting old patches. One of the objects I rely quite heavily on is [aka.datagram] which I guess is now long unmaintained, so I'm looking for advice on what I should replace it with? I guess this is a possible opportunity for [node.script], but if possible I'd prefer to keep everything within Max itself.
    Cheers :)

      hi,
      there are 2 more possibillities, which should work.
      1) using an external The sadam Library http://www.sadam.hu/hu/node/1 Streaming & Networking
      1) using java
      best, abs

      Thanks abs, the sadam Library looks pretty interesting. Shame it's not open source, but I guess you can't win them all. Think I'd probably take node's dgram module over java if I have to go down that route seeing as node is completely integrated into Max. I'll have a play with my options and see what works :)
