* oscP5parsing by andreas schlegel
* example shows how to parse incoming osc messages "by hand".
* it is recommended to take a look at oscP5plug for an
* alternative and more convenient way to parse messages.

/* myRemoteLocation is a NetAddress. a NetAddress takes 2 parameters,
* an ip address and a port number. myRemoteLocation is used as parameter in
* oscP5.send() when sending osc packets to another computer, device,
* application. usage see below. for testing purposes the listening port
* and the port of the remote location address are the same, hence you will
* send messages back to this sketch.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
