returns the proc whose name is given in argument. The initial :: in the proc identifier can be omitted. Useful to convert directly a string received through OSC or through a message into a process that can be instantiated.

For example, assuming that is set in the Max environment to a tab of two elements, the first being a process identifier and the second an integer, then the code

            :: (@string2proc($channel[0])) ($channel[1])
will react to the assignment to $channel by calling the corresponding processes with the specified integer.
