Hi Rick,

your patch won't work.
There are several wrong idioms, please take a look at the help file of
The idea is you write each single line with the [add ( message and
eventually write the whole text to a .txt file.
The [print ( message in your patch is not needed.

Also be careful while using [pack]. Remember that whenever it receives
something on the first (hot) inlet, it outputs all the values it stored.
In your patch [pack] behaviour is controlled properly. See also [pack] help
A proper use of [pack] wouldn't require the [bondo] obj.


I can create the data but the questions I have
> 1) I keep getting a write failed.
> 2) how can I get the commas between the values?
> 3) is there a way to do leading zeros?
> Here's a link to my pd

> Ps: I'm using Linux ubuntu 10.04 64bit
