In jcom.model.maxhelp one can send various messages to jcom.message by using the [s incoming] and [r incoming] objects. Some of these messages starts of with mymessage (without a slash) and others with /mymessage (with a slash). The message without a slash works fine, but the ones with the slash cause the following error message to be printed to the Max window:

/mymessage is an absolute address

It's hard for me to tell if this is a bug or assumed behavior, but anyway the help file need to be updated so that it serves to illustrate the use of jcom.model rather than exposing problems.

Hi Trond,
this not a bug but documentation is missing about this.
I've just added a red message to show thet the error is expected in the maxhelp.

but we need to make a specific tutorial (or any documentation) to explain the difference between absolute address (with a leading slash) and relative address (without leading slash). Relative address is a very powerfull feature that allow to edit some internal behaviours between models even if they are embedded inside a model.
