GridFlow is absolutely not separable from neither C++ nor Ruby.
That is, unless you want to go back to GridFlow 0.5 (may 2002)...

However you can separate it from PureData.

Two days ago you still could host it in jMax 2.5 and jMax 4.1, but I
ditched all of that because I didn't want to have to maintain it anymore,
since no-one uses jMax at all nowadays.

Watch your language. =)

ok, so let's write [#import_pdp] and [#export_pdp]. What packet-types
ought to be supported by those two object-classes? I mean a GridFlow Grid
should map to how many PDP packet-types, and which ones?

I'm trying to make GF my business, but I don't work often enough on it :-/
