Javascript Crashes Max/MSP

Jun 29 2010 | 10:35 pm


I have a patch that use an OCR program (tesseract) to analyze images culled from video. It is part of a larger patch that does all sorts of things with that data. It crashes fairly regularly (usually with 10 15 minutes of start but sometimes as long as an hour). I believe I have the crash isolated to the javascript that draws the text to the matrix "werds". If I disconnect this script the program runs for at least 24 hours. But I can’t figure out what in the script (if anything) is making it crash. I have modified it (so you can use the text file I am attaching) rather than needing all the other third party stuff. I am including the other parts of the patch in case they may be causing or contributing to the problem.

Any help with this would be fantastic.

Did you try prioritizing the function with immediate attribute? See if this makes a difference. I’ve had issues with this, .immediate=1 will put the process in the overdrive queue. Possibly jitter is looking for values that are defered, and therefore not ready when its called by the matrix? Just a thought.
