Hi, I'm using Vanilla 46-7
I'm parsing osc data from the "CONTROL (OSC+MIDI)" app.
When using the multitouchXT interface, I unpack the message using [unpack s f f].
The "s" is a number indicating which cursor is being moved or tapped, the two floats correspond to the X Y coordinates.
When I print the "s" directly, The console displays "symbol n" (n corresponds to the cursor number)
If I send the outlet corresponding to "s" to [$1( and print it afterwards, the console displays only the "n".
The problem I'm having, is that I can't find a way to use that "n" value to route or select different actions.
When using [select 1 2 3 4 5] feeding it from the [$1( I get a "no method for 'n' " message. But if I feed it directly from the unpack outlet it does not give back any error, but does not select anything either.
I guess I'm missing some very basic stuff, but I'm really stuck.
Thank you. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
PS: A completely different question: Today I've noticed several examples also inside the forum with text inside a number box.
Like: [text\ or two numbers separated by a space inside one box [1 22\ ... Is that possible? What is it supposed to mean?
