I'm using #0 extensively in a new project to create unique send/receive and
coll objects within instances of a patch. I discovered something new to me
by accident. (I know, it's probably in the manual.) :-)
It goes like this. #0 gets replaced bt a unique 4-digit number that can be
used as part of the name for something created in a patch. It turns out
that the same number is passed down to any subpatches created with the
patcher object or encapsulation.
I guess I am just getting old but things like this make me happy - like a
cookie and warm milk.
Make a new folder. Name this firehose and save it to that folder.
When you open fireman, firehose and it's subpatcher get the same number in
place of #0.
NOTE: This doesn't work if the subpach "putoutfire" is saved as a separate
