Best programming environment and how to program external objects

    Sep 10 2010 | 6:13 pm
    Hello everybody, I've discover Max/MSP recently, and I'm thinking about the possibility of develop my final career project.I have been testing and documenting and I have not found any updated tutorial (Max5) to learn to program my own external objects. Anyway, what development environment would you recommend? (I'm working on Mac OSX). I have not decided if I'm going to program in C or Java. Is there any way to edit external objects within Max 5?. I'm sorry, recognizes that the question is quite simple :), but have not found an answer so far. Would be very grateful if someone helps me.
    Thanks in advance.

      yea, understandable that you had trouble finding it: after many community requests, Cycling74 finally posted the SDK online but kept it separate from the rest of the docs:

      The Java docs should be in Max5/java-doc.
      Xcode works well for C development in OS X (download it from For java, eclipse is has served me well.
