Utility for converting Max/MSP binary patches to text
cyclist is a command line utility for converting the .mxb binary format for Max/MSP patches into the .mxt/.pat text format. It is part of the Cyclone library for Pure Data, which aims to bring some level of compatibility between the Max/MSP and Pd environments. Although being itself in the early stage of development, it is meant to eventually become part of a much larger project, aiming at unification and standardization of computer musician's tools.
In its current form, cyclone is mainly for people using both Max and Pd, and thus wanting to develop cross-platform patches. In this respect, cyclone has much in common with Thomas Grill's flext, and flext-based externals. While flext enables developing new cross-platform classes, cyclone makes existing classes cross-platform.
Cyclone also comes handy, somewhat, in the task of importing Max/MSP patches into Pd. Do not expect miracles, though, it is usually not an easy task.
