Plotting values from a coll

January 23, 2014 | 2:23 pm

I have a (multicolumn) coll that I read out and I would like to plot the values from one column. Ideally I would read out the values and send them to plot but that does not do the trick.

I could use join to create a list but there are more than 100 items in the coll, so I should make a join with more than 100 inlets and a gate to send the incoming value to the right space. That option is thus out of the question.

Is there another way that I would be able to create a list? Probably there is and I am overlooking it so if anyone an give a pointer that would be great.

Use unpack to select the output data you want to plot. Connect the outlet that corresponds to the column to the left inlet of zl.group. Then connect the 4th outlet of the coll to the left inlet of zl.group. Send a dump message to the coll and the zl.group object will output the list after the coll is done dumping.
