how to save generated patches in runtime ?

    how can i write a patch which modifies another patch on disk and saves it afterwards, in a runtime application? i don't see any solution for this as: - the thispatcher object 'write' message only works in Max but is disabled in the runtime mode; - and in javascript, the patcher object does not have a 'write' method... this is a pity, all the power of javascript for generating patches with some other patch but no save/write method.

      Not sure how you would do this if you need to modify an existing patch.
      But if your app can create the patch you want to modify through one of the scripting mechanisms, then all you need to do is track the steps taken to create the patch and write those out. Think of your runtime app as an interpreter for the code you are storing.
