I am using a python script to open Pd files on a Raspberry Pi. I am having an issue because I using shell commands to open Pure Data and when I want to open a new patch it always opens a new instance of Pd. Is there any way to have Pd only run in one instance? Is there a message I can give it? or a flag or something?
EDIT: here's a better way of asking my question. Is there a shell command I can use to open a .pd file in an already open instance of Pure Data? That's really what's hanging me up.
Thank you in advance for any help.
