How would one complete something like the following?
That is, the input being four floats (which would be constrained to integers 0-255), and the output being a symbol e.g. '192.168.1.105' -- convert the integers to ASCII and concatenate them with periods in between.
I did some web searching but I only found that string operations are difficult in pd without externals.
The catch is that I had an idea to use Pd(Droid)Party as an OSC controller, so I'm not sure I can use externals.
I've successfully tested a static IP on the computer, hardcoding the address into the patch. But (and here, perhaps I'm half-mad) I was considering this for an electronic ensemble class. The thought of getting 15-20 students, with varying levels of technical skill, to create static IPs correctly induces dread. It would be nice to make the address configurable.
