once the data is in pd-space (as list) you can use whatever you want to
i don't think there is a general "best way" to do it.
with recent versions of pd, using [list] is definitely a good choice
(doesn't require any externals)
how have you tried to dump the data into a table and why did it not
work? (in older pd's i would have used zexy's [tabset] instead of
manually unrolling the list and writing the data with [tabwrite]; you
canalso do this with plain pd)
as for iemmatrix, isn't it part of pd-extended? i will put a binary
