Another multimedia dataflow programming system

Didn't find it mentioned previously on LtU, although Pd is apparently wizened so I'd figure some folks here would already have checked it out? Considered to be in the "Max" family, I guess.

Even though several computer scientists followed Sutherland's pioneering work, somehow graphical programming didn't really take off in the mainstream computer world. Besides the LABView[3], a tool popular among industrial engineers, there is only one two-dimensional programming language that has found massive use - and that is the paradigm used in the "Max"-family of software which Pd is a member of.
