#955 [namecanvas] is not obsolete!


I always read that the [namecanvas] is obsolete. That's not true.
One can address a subpatch via "pd-SUBPATCHNAME", but that does not work with the toplevel-patch.

Actually it does with "pd-FILENAME.pd". But it's not a good idea (nor intended I guess) to make the patches internals depend on the filename. - Filenames may change and thus break the patch. Eg. if you improve a patch and save it to a new file, you would always have to rearrange that name as well...
And, more important, if you open several patches with the same name, you will get nameconflicts! (One cannot use "$0" in the filename, ofcourse...)

So in short: [namecanvas] is needed. Eg. for GOP-abstractions!

    seems like you are using an outdated version of Pd (or at least: reading outdated information).

    recent versions don't have the warning anymore.

    That's not true.
    pd0.43.4-ext (windows): right click on canvas, select help & scroll down.
    [namecanvas] appears under "obsolete", just like in 0.42.5

    I guess different infos are mixed...
    Btw. 0.42.5 still is called "current release"...

    Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
