You don’t give much information to go on. You say your data is a
list? a database? What kind of database? The more specific you are
in your question, the more specific will be the response.

How about this;

http://www.andreapolli.com/datareader

‘datareader is designed as a general-purpose MAX/MSP tool for the production
of data sonifications and other applications in which reading multi-column
spreadsheet data is necessary.

The datareader object allows users to read and output each column of a
multi-column asci file (up to 64 columns) through a separate outlet. Each
line can be output sequentially, forward or backward, or by indicating a
specific line number. The object also includes simple interpolation and
smoothing between lines.’

thanks for the links.. =)

i have 2 list of datas that i want to compare wif.. and want to do up a program that is able to read these 2 list of datas and perform a task when the 2 datas read are the same.

e.g :

data 1: T
data 2: G
data 3: A
data 4: G

when data 1 and data 2 are read, nothing happens. but when data 2 and data 4 are read, a task is able to be done..

ya.. that is roughly wat i want to do with max..

Sorry but this is confusing. What are the two lists, and when are
they considered the same?

For example:
List 1: 1 2 4 4
List 2: 4 2 1 3
=======
a b c d

Does something happen at point a, b, c or d? I think you mean b,
although your example could indicate d.

Are you comparing nucleotides in DNA sequences?

hello!

Recently I have purchased a Mac Book pro and installed the Max/MSP
4.6.2, I have downloaded the new External object of Eric Lyon and
have put the granola~ in the
/ Applications/ Max/MSP 4.6/ Cycling’74/ externals
When I open my patch the Max Windows show me :
error: Macintosh HD:/ Applications/ Max/MSP 4.6/ Cycling’74/
externals/ Lyon Externals/ granola~: loading old CFM externals disabled
how to fix? could some person send me the new granola~ for 4.6.2?
thanks
