The goal is to work on a GUI interface where the user can either type or paste in ASCII art for a Purr Data diagram and have it converted to a floating selection in the current Purr Data diagram. The ability for the user to type ASCII art into an object box that will be created and get converted into Pd diagram would be useful. This would let users paste ASCII art from the mailing list directly into the interface and make it easier for them to create Purr Data diagrams using only the keyboard. Also, the goal includes working on converting a subset of Purr Data diagrams into ASCII art after picking a subset of convertible Pd diagrams to ASCII art from the text archives of the Pd mailing list that can be parsed.
