Hi everybody! Thanks in advance for your help...
I'm trying to build a server to send and receive messages from multiple touch devices using the free app Fantastick due to its support of OpenGL (http://www.pinktwins.com/fantastick/). It was a tossup between this and Control (http://charlie-roberts.com/Control/). Both are excellent and free (which is important, because I don't want guests to my performance/installation to have to make the choice to pay for an app... credit will definitely be given where due, obviously!)
However! Caveats, caveats, caveats. Both apps communicate via UDP. And in order to make a server, I need to be able to associate incoming messages with an IP number, which the mrpeach objects provide (unlike [netreceive]).
The problem is, however, that, whereas I can decode incoming OSC messages using [unpackOSC], I am stuck trying to find a method to decode the lists of numbers being sent by Fantastick. [netreceive] does this just fine, but then I lose the IP address! And I can't seem to use both at the same time as a kludge.
So the question seems to be: how can I decode lists of ASCII numbers into lists of symbols and floats???
