I have an external that is opening a patcher using stringload(). It tries
to send a bang message to the patch using typedmess((t_object*)patch,
gensym("bang"), 0, NULL). The patcher prints the error message: "patcher:
doesn't understand 'bang'". the patcher has has an inlet that prints out
is it valid to use typedmess() to send a message to a patcher? also, i'm
not sure if the (t_object*) cast is valid.
