this is my first call to you.
I am having problems getting clean data from a gps device.
when i print them out of the [ mxj.net.receive objects] to the max
the list is somehow managable. But when i try to [prepend set ] the
into a new message it appears like this:
so my problem is: how to get rid of this slash?
(i have tried with [jsregexp] but i think the manipulation about this
character "" is far outof my knowledge.
could you help me please?
the backslash is a bit tricky in max as it is an escape character which tells Max to ignore any special meaning attached to the following character. Try sending "special, test" and "special, test" to print and you’ll see what i’m talking about.
Though i don’t have time to explain all the ins and outs of it here is an annotated patch showing how to filter the "," part of the message.
You’ll need to do more filtering to get something usable i imagine.
