How do i compile a Pd-patch to run as a stand-alone application?

Up to Table of Contents

This is currently not possible to compile a patch into a binary program. Pd patch files are always plain text and need the Pd program to run.

However, the main reason why Max/MSP and similar allow you to create a standalone application is to distribute a patch without having to pay license fees to the distributor. Since Pure Data is Free Software, you can just distribute your patch along with the needed Pd binary.

On Mac OS X, Pd-extended 0.41.4 makes it easy to make such a distribution. You can make a standalone .app using the "Make app from" menu options in the File menu.
