help with coll object

hi,
I am doing an assignment for uni and we have to use the coll object to store numbers.
using the coll object before, I thought coll could only store messages, is there a way to store numbers in coll
or convert numbers to messages that can be stored into coll?

Thanks
Laura

messages, symbols, numbers, it can store pretty much anything. use [pack] and [unpack] to store lists and retrieve them, where the [pack] has the coll index # as the first element in the list (even if you’re just storing single numbers, which would be a two-element list: index, value).

[listfunnel] and [zl] could also be important to know with this, take a look… guarantee you’ll get some new ideas :)

Laura,

have you looked at the coll help file? Are you going to the MSP symposium tomorrow?
