Line message assembled via sprintf doesn't behave as expected

    The patch pretty much says it all. I am tired, but I can't see any obvious reason for this. Max 6.0.8, Mac os 10.8.4. Thanks for any input.

      I think perhaps you're misunderstanding the role of the comma (,). In a message box (not in a line object!), it serves to separate individual messages. So if (in a message box!) you have "10., 27. 3000" and you trigger that message box, it sends out the message "float 10." followed immediately by the message "list 27. 3000". The line object understands int, float, and list messages, but does not have any idea what to do with a comma.

      Hi spectro are you looking to get a comma into a dynamically variable message for [line]?
      I stumbled across the use of [pak f , f f], connected to the right inlet of a message (or wherever you like I suppose):

      Chris: Thanks, your explanation makes the distinction quite obvious now - got lost in a fog there I think... Brendan: Nice tip - didn't know that.
      Cheers to you both.
