pdsend (1)


       pdsend - send messages to pd on this or a remote machine


       pdsend port-number [hostname] [udp|tcp]


       Pdsend  sends  messages to pd(1), via a socket conection, from pdsend's
       standard input.  This input can be any stream of Pd messages  separated
       by  semicolons.   This  is  probably the easiest way to control pd from
       another application.  The protocol used is easy  to  implement  and  is
       called FUDI.

       The  port  number  should  agree with the port number of a "netreceive"
       object within pd.  The hostname is "localhost" by default and can be  a
       domain  name  or an IP address.  The protocol is "tcp" by default; this
       does a handshake to guarantee that all messages arrive complete and  in
       their  correct  order; if you are sending messages locally or point-to-
       point you can often get away with the faster udp protocol instead.

       You can also use this to talk to a Max "pdnetreceive"  object  or  even
       just a "pdreceive" in another shell.  If you're writing another program
       you're welcome to just grab the sources for pdsend/pdreceive and  adapt
       them to your own ends; they're part of the Pd distribution.
