nc -l 12000

and you can connect to your terminal session at port 12000

isadora – text formatter <-> text parser

pars-format formatparse

Using a text parser / formatter combination to let multiple values flow through one wire. Extreme useful if you need to connect actors in multiple macro patches.

As the Actors having an intelligent way to save cpu cycles they don’t send or parse the same text string ones done. So if you need to send the same values again through the wire , you should add a port and use a changing value as a refresh signal like done heretoggle_2format
