I felt sure that I had asked this question before, but having reviewed ALL my previous posts - apparently not:
I am passing sensor data into PD (PurrData) via the [comport] external. If the numbers are sent as 'raw' bytes (Serial.write), I can parse them easily enough. I would like to try using Serial.print, which will allow me to send numbers >255. Can some kind soul remind me how to convert ascii back into the sensor integers. In Max, I would do this: [itoa] -> [fromsymbol], But it seems a little more involved in PD. I've been trying [spell], [makefile] etc without success.
