Brand new at this. My first question is what exactly is the term for letters in Max/Msp? Numbers are integers or abbreviated as "i" but what are letters and what is their abbreviation?
I'm also attempting to have a text input box that outputs the users text into an "if" or "else" system of objects that depending on what the user inputs has different outcomes. For example, say the user types in the sentence "pitch a tent". If anything other than that exact sentence is typed in, I would want the patch to output the text "error". But if that exact sentence is typed in, I would want the patch to output the text "tent pitched"
