If I want to, for example, add pddp help patches without overwriting the

add that directory as another line in my .pdrc. I personally would use
these -path and -helppath directives to keep the pd installation "clean"
and then point to other directories for externals and their help patches.
I know of some externals, for example iemlib, that already put their
help-files into subdirectories. iemlib for exampls looks in
Yup. I'm aware of that. That puts control in the hands of the externals
developer, and not the end-user, though. This way it will also look in
my/help/dir/iemhelp before doc/5.reference/iemhelp.
/usr/local/pd/doc/5.reference is a fairly obscure directory for users to
have to find (especially with the /usr tree generally hidden from the Mac
GUI). I'm hoping to allow for easier installation of externals this way.
