controlling OS


    Dec 12 2006 | 9:45 pm
    Hi I'm new to this forum (and to MAX/MSP I guess too)
    Is there a way to send commands from MAX to the OS or other programs? Specifically I am wondering about things like controlling the cursor or having MAX open other programs or do automatic google searches. I have am running Mac OSX 10.4.8.
    Thanks!

      Dont know about the cursor thing- but there is a google external that you can download from maxobjects.com - and with a little fiddling about you can use shell (you can get that in the same place) to open/close control other programs.
