pat to txt automator
Max is able to generate a text file out of a patch (and this is no new gospel indeed). What I was trying to do is construct something on which I could throw a bunch op pat files which then would be converted to txt files (I want to perform automated searching). What I did manage to do is a scripted instantiation of such a patch. Then I get stuck. It is possible to 'script send' the message write, but is brings up a dialog and doesn't accept any extra arguments. I noticed that it is allowed to send undocumented messages (such as copy and paste), so I am hopeful that someone has the key to solving this.
