Convert Max symbol to Jitter string matrix

The jit.str.fromsymbol object converts Max symbols into string matrices.

A word on Jitter strings: In Jitter, any 1 plane char matrix may be manipulated as a string. String matrices may have one or two dimensions. If 1-dimensional, the string is considered terminated at the first 0 (like in C). If 2-dimensional, the string may be considered a multi-line string, with the first 0 encountered on each row treated as a carriage return. The jit.textfile and jit.str.op objects will accept and output 2D matrices. jit.str.fromsymbol only outputs 1D matrices and jit.str.tosymbol only accepts 1D matrices (or the first row of a 2D matrix).

matrix inputs:0, matrix outputs:1
