 You will want to take a look at [textfile] in the main distro.

it allows you to save a text file, reading or writing to it one line at a
time. The [textfile] object it self acts as an array of lists, until you
either clear it or write to a file with it.

The documentation for it is pretty straight forward, but if you need any
help feel free to ask. I just finished using it extensively for a pretty big

Subject: [PD] Saving list of strings to file?

Hi all,

I'm working on a drum sampler patch where I maintain a number of 
different samples.  I would like to be able to save a list of filenames 
to a file for later loading up of a configuration.  What would be the 
best way to do this?  My thinking is, an array of strings would work, 
which I could just send a "write" or "read" message, but I don't know if

this is even possible.  What is generally a good approach to doing this 
sort of thing in PD?  Any help would be most appreciated.
