Dear all, I'm reading Miller Puckette's Theory and Techniques of Electronic Music. To help myself understand the examples in the book better, I try to implement some examples in Max/MSP instead of PD.
To avoid name conflicts, these examples utilize a special feature in PD: the symbol $0 will be replaced by a unique id for each patch. After some forum search, I found that #0 seems to be the trick.
However, I can't any mention in the max5 reference document about this feature. Is this still working in Max5? How can I test it (because I think simply print a "#0" message won't display the unique id)?
Any input will be appreciated.
