Me neither, I only know about that command bcs I searched the forums the other day. Not sure how to close an application. Are you on a mac or pc? If Mac, maybe you can use a shell object (someone made one) and send a message to the terminal telling it to kill an application... I do not know :[
I'm quite keen on your first question, its very relevant to a project I'm collaborating on, is there a way to open and talk to OpenFrameWorks patches within max? In the same way you would with a bpatcher?
I know that there is an external for executing AppleScript in Max. And in AppleScript you can use the Scripting-Functions of an application or simply access the Cocoa-Accessibility-Framework which lets you explore and control every User-Interface (if it is using the Accessibility Framework which normally every UI-Element does) ...
Also, in most cases, you can access Data through the AppleScript-Bridge...
Tochtli, just remove the ""
in fact if you copy paste "" from the forums, you'll have troubles often, so just remove the "" you copypasted and type them back on. If you do this in a max message box for
you'll see that the "" disappear. It's a problem of "" formatting : when on the forum, they are converted to ““ instead of "". As i'm typing it, i'm not even sure it will show any difference when this message will be posted, but the characters remain 'silently' different when you copypaste them.
