This is the right place to ask! :)  coll is supposed to be able to  
open textfiles, but I think they are supposed to have a specific  
format.  It is meant for Max/MSP compatibility, you might have better  
luck with the native Pd versions: textfile and qlist

As we enjoy great advantages from inventions of others, we should be  
glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and  
this we should do freely and generously.         - Benjamin Franklin
