oscP5 / OscArgument / blobValue( )

blobValue ( )
get the byte array (blob) of the osc argument. 
 * oscP5parsing by andreas schlegel
 * example shows how to parse incoming osc messages "by hand".
 * it is recommended to take a look at oscP5plug for an
 * alternative and more convenient way to parse messages.
