I'm considering creating an audio networking prototype application in PD on Android.
I already have networking externals I written in C a few years ago (not unlike netsend~ and netreceive~), but I'm new with libpd. The networking externals employ POSIX sockets.
So questions are:
- are the sockets ok under Android? Being a Linux system I believe they will work compiling with the NDK, but I fear they will interfere with all the Android networking layer (which I don't know and anyway I don't think I can call from plain C code).
- how do I embed my external in libpd? Since libpd is basically the vanilla Pd I guess somehow I'll have to let it know that there are other externals binaries somewhere...
Thank you guys
