My folder structure:
/mother-patch.pd ( main pure data patch first loaded and running... )
How i could open /patches/1/main.pd triggered by some action in the mother-patch.pd?
How i could close /patches/1/main.pd triggered by some action in the mother-patch.pd?
I'm attempting to clone the Critter and Guitari organelle ( link ).
This instrument is basically a computer running libpd and running very cool pure data patches

I have a mother pure data patch that it's first loaded when the device is on, this patch is doing some [send] and [receive] operations related to the knobs/keyboard/volume/led and it should be also managing the loading ( opening and closing ) of the child pure data patches ( mentioned above ). This child patches are receiving the actions from the mother patch.
If I open the mother patch and the child patches manually, everything works fine. But now I need to OPEN this CHILD PURE DATA patches with a object within the mother patch.
I've been testing [open] , for opening the main.pd of the child patches but it does not work.
I've been testing [pd] , for opening the main.pd of the child patches but it does not work.
I wouldn't like to modify the original organelle patches.
I wouldn't like to end up loading all the patches using [pd ...] and inserting a [switch] object inside every main.pd file in the patches in order to enable only the dsp of the desired patch.
It would be perfect If i could have a folder with all the patches and load them within the mother patch with some kind of object. And I would also want to be able to CLOSE the pure data patch and open another ( changing patches... )
Every little and big help woul be MUCH APRECIATED!
