Packet processing library for PureData

PDP is an extension library for PureData, aimed at providing video and other media processing fuctionality. Its focus is on images and video. There is limited support for matrix processing included in the main library, an extension library for 1D and 2D binary cellular automata, OpenGL rendering (like Gem), and a library that lets you connect a scheme interpreter (guile) to PD/PDP. Future plans include audio buffers (like Vasp), ascii packets, and text buffers.
