Beginner Question About Code


    Sep 02 2007 | 5:25 pm
    Hello All,
    I have been searching through these forums to further my understanding of Max/MSP. I've noticed that a lot of responses include lines of code, each of which is prefaced by #P. What does this mean? Sorry for such a basic question, thank you in advance for your help!
    Best, Julian

      Max can be represented as text as well. Instead of uploading a file, people paste this text (which can be retrieved by opening a patch as text-under "file"), and reduces file size. If you paste this text into an empty patcher, it will appear as the necessary objects and connections in the patcher.
      There's a little more to it than that, but not much. Sometimes you need to leave off the top and bottom of the patch text, but some people do it for you.
      Ignore this stop at the top:
      and this at the bottom:
      Thanks, Keith
