Is Pd = puredata? I mentioned a while back I'd been thinking of trying
to use a usb gamepad as a midi source, didn't mean poking hardware,
but finding some way of linking up the joystick drivers to the midi
interface, it looked like puredata might be one way to do that, but
haven't got around to trying yet.
Yes, pd-* is Pure Data. I just got a Beta book from Pragmatic on Pd -
In other news, I probably posted this already, but I have my HP
Pavilion dv4 on Fedora 20, installed from the Jam 20130914 nightly
64-bit ISO. It seems to be rock-solid, at least on a wired network.
I'm currently learning both Pure Data and ChucK. I've got them both
installed on my Fedora 19 laptop from Planet CCRMA, but I know ChucK
builds from source on both 19 and 20. I haven't tried a source build
of Pure Data yet on either; it looks a bit hairy compared to ChucK.
