[textfile] is the most similar object to coll in Pd. If you also
include externals, then you could also look into pool, msgfile, pbank
or of course the Lua loader.

[sssad] can be used for this, where to save to is yur choice -
textfile, msg, pool, coll, all work. Memento is another system for
state saving, which requires [pool] and [OSCroute].

Send a "symbol /my/path" to [openpanel] instead of a bang. You may be
interested in reading the help-file for openpanel. ;)
