command-line args for standalones?


    Oct 02 2007 | 4:51 pm
    Hey maxers --
    Does anyone know if it's possible to pass in arguments from a
    command-line invocation of a max-created standalone app? Something
    like this:
    open maxapp.app 1 2 3 4
    I scanned through the tutorials and list archives and didn't find
    anything; probably can't be done.

      This is not supported, like for most UI applications. However, I'd
      suggest that you create a script which takes those arguments, write
      them in a file, open your maxapp, and ask your maxapp to look at that
      file.
      Best,

      That's what I suspected.

      and that's what I'll do. Thanks!

      Hi,
      put the parameters into an environment variable and read it with proper object in maxmsp if any.
