Just wanted to mention that I uploaded a new object to my share page:
The pattrmarker object associates a patcher with a global name, which
can be used when looking up named objects. This permits, among other
conveniences, name lookup and communication between two or more
independent patcher hierarchies.
Simply place a named pattrmarker object in the patcher you'd like to
associate with a name. In this case, we're naming our patcher
"biggy". Objects in "biggy" can be found using the following naming
"::biggy::objectname" or "global::biggy::objectname"
Right now, just versions for Max 4.5.7 and 4.6.x are there - I'll
upload the Windows version shortly (in the next 24 hours).
Thanks for any feedback (good or bad equally appreciated) -
