Is there any chance for the JitterMatrix object in JS to be implemented in a future release so that its read method accepts files expressed as absolute paths, not just filenames? I believe it should behave as the standard jit.matrix object, but the actual limitation to filenames leads to tricky situations I think…
Looks like this as a string: "Macintosh HD:/Users/fd/Desktop/tests/afolder/testMatrix.jxf.jit"
My tests are using two different matrices with the same name ("testMatrix.jxf.jit") and a different size for checking. Each of these is placed in a different folder ("afolder", "anotherfolder"). If these folders are not in Max’s file search path they won’t be found at all. If they are in the search path I have this message in the Max window (warning you have multiple files with the same name, using this). So it really looks like in all cases the path is stripped before actual reading.
Tests with same conditions and results done in both
Max 6.0.8, Mac OS10.8
Max 5.0.9, Mac OS10.7.5
