R> Help - How do I parse real time text data into max msp

    Mar 29 2012 | 8:07 pm
    Hey forum, I'm new to max msp and i'm wondering if someone can guide me on
    -how to feed news paper headlines from cnn or msn or fox or w/e any news outlet -- perhaps xml ? twitter?
    - use those string datatypes to convert to ASCI numbers
    - use those numbers to play certain key tones based on the value
    Due to the max msp interface, i'm not quite sure how to go about this.
    I have searched and i found results saying jit.str.regexp, but i'm unsure how this works. Could someone lead me to max resources that might have information about this?
    so far i was thinking the route to go about this is
    twitter > jit.uldl > spits out an xml > detox > txt > covert string to int > sound

      There's also this:
      jit.str.regexp looks much more complicated than it is. Regexp is it's own beast, you can get a handle on in using the regexp object before parsing jitter files. Check out the help file and online reference for both. I'd recommend just diving into jit.str.regexp and breaking it into smaller pieces. Then if you get stuck you can look to regexp for syntax help.
