using coll and retreiving a list and not SYMBOL?

February 24, 2013 | 10:04 pm

Dear all,
I try to make M4L read a file that contains steps information and fill automatically my live.grid.

I have a text file (the steps…):
0, "1 1 1, 3 1 1";
1, "5 1 1, 9 1 1";
2, "1 1 1, 5 1 1, 9 1 1, 13 1 1";

I use the function coll to gather the list of steps "1 1 1, 3 1 1", etc..

the issue is that coll sends me back the following results: SYMBOL 1 1 1, 3 1 1
and I don’t know how to manipulate this answer, this result?
I was expecting to get "1 1 1, 3 1 1"

I tried to convert SYMBOL into a list using the function ‘fromsymbol’
but the output is "SYMBOL", there is not the list 1 1 1, 3 1 1, … I got only SYMBOL :-(

hum, I know I am a dummy!
can you help?
I put the patch below :-)
