There is an important difference between C/C++ and "scripting
languages" (including Pd): rapid prototyping is much faster with
scripting languages than with C/C++. And Pd and Python are much easier
to learn than C. Pd patches or Python scripts are easier to compile.
I just want people to see, that everything doesn't need to be a
C-application and that they can do a lot of things with much simpler
