Hello list, I'm working on something for wich I need to browse through a
97 lines, 16 collumn( separated by tabs) textfile.
I used textfile for this, with a counter, only letting output trough
when the right 'line' number has been reached.
( so actually banging the textfile object 60 times to get to line 60).
Whatever method I use, this is too slow, and it doesn't seem
the right way to do this at all - however the only method I could find
possible using pd's builtin objects, and keeping all the data
in one file, not spreading them over array's and multiple textfile
objects ( the data needs to be updated regularly manually)
I hoped to use msgfile for this, but as soon as I load the file my
memory usage goes up 99% eventually crashing PD, or making it unusable.
I don't think pool works for this? I was hoping to checkout the 'coll'
object but I it's in cyclone(?) wich will not complie ( gcc 3?).
Anyhow, qlist and textfile are the worst option ( they work like a
'stack?' what I want to do is to use an array containing a mix of text
is there an external I overlooked that I could use for this?
sorry for bothering this, but I've been browsing for some time now and
still don't find the answer...
