Subject: [PD] error while reading filename from textfile

hi list

I'm trying to read a filename from a textfile list.

I got the filename in pd but if I like to get this filename in a
with $1, pd got an error:

> error: $1: argument number out of range

trying to get the filename in makesymbol or makefilename:
> error: makesymbol: no method for 'filename.blah'

maybe someone can tell me, why this doesn't work and  what would be a
working solution.

thanx a lot

part of my patch that does not work:

|symbol $1(
|makefilename path/%s{
