Sends a Open Sound Control (OSC) message through a UDP connection

oscsend(u,path)
oscsend(u,path,types,arg1,arg2,...)
oscsedn(u,path,types,[args])

u = UDP object with open connection.
path = path-string
types = string with types of arguments,
supported:
i = integer
f = float
s = string
N = Null (ignores corresponding argument)
I = Impulse (ignores corresponding argument)
T = True (ignores corresponding argument)
F = False (ignores corresponding argument)
B = boolean (not official: converts argument to T/F in the type)
not supported:
b = blob

args = arguments as specified by types.

EXAMPLE
u = udp('127.0.0.1',7488);
fopen(u);
oscsend(u,'/test','ifsINBTF', 1, 3.14, 'hello',[],[],false,[],[]);
fclose(u);

See http://opensoundcontrol.org/ for more information about OSC.

Hi sorry, trying to wrap my head around using this function. Currently I've just been using it to trigger some main window actions eg.
oscsend(u,'/action', 'i', 40005); % remove tracks in the main window.

Is there any way of using the function to trigger other window actions, such as the media explorer window
oscsend(u,'/action', 'i', 40030); %Browser: Select next file in directory

Thank you for this!

Does what it says on the tin. Many thanks :-)
