[PD] tabread4~~

What they are doing is increasing the accuracy of reading samples from
a large table, using 2 32-bit floats, instead of just one.
This [line~~] is a function of time, mapping time onto a 1-D path in the plane.

Tabread4~ works by pointer arithmetic.  My guess what happens is, you
add the first outlet of line~~ to the beginning of the array.  Then
you add the second one.  And because you're doing it in two separate
steps, there's no loss in accuracy.
Or do you take a double, break it up into two floats, pass them, and
put them back together?
