i'll clarify a bit...

i add a list to a table with:

-- "insert [list]" into 1st inlet:
function M:in_1_insert(list)
    table.insert(self.mydata, list)

then i search the table for the pattern "score = 1" and ask it to print 
the lines containing the matched pattern

-- what to do on "scores" into 1st inlet:
function M:in_1_scores()
for i, v in ipairs(self.mydata) do
if string.match(v, "score = 1", 1, true) then
self:outlet(1, "list", v) end

the problem is that the string.match is expecting a string and getting a 
table and i'm not sure how to fix this - i thought the ipairs was 
iterating the table into a string  but its not.

here is the error from pd:
[string "rob2"]:19: bad argument #1 to 'match' (string expected, got table)

lua and lua files attached

any guidance welcome,


rob c
