Hallo, guenter geiger hat gesagt: // guenter geiger wrote:
This would be one solution, the main problem with including prepend I see in the fact that it is working completely differently from the builtin append object. This would introduce inconsistency into the system.
But [append] belongs to a whole other family of objects as it deals with data structures and pointers, something [prepend] can not work with. A prepend for pointers wouldn't be useful anyways, as the order of graph objects isn't really known (well, it is known to Pd, but it would require a lot of work to keep track of the order for a user).
I think, [prepend] would be important as a Max-compatibility object, and it's also very useful for dealing with lists. I don't believe the inconsistency would be a real problem.
The better solution would be to include it into the external collection on CVS (which I am going to do now, if its possible).
This also is a good solution, and I'd be very grateful if you did this, but it still wouldn't solve the problem that occurs if someone loads a library which includes another [prepend] like IEMLib. Well, I already use IEMLib in single externals format after Hans did it that way in the CVS.
Having prepend built-in would notallow it to be overwritten, would it? Of course making it built-in would have to be decided by Miller for the next official version. It would be very wrong to have this addition in the devel-version only.
