writing binary files

February 2, 2006 | 2:56 pm

Hi,

I’m looking for an object which let’s me write RAW single bytes, longs
etc. directly to a file,
basically the exact counterpart of what the max object [filein] does.

I’ve looked at jit.textfile, at jasch’s toxine, and they are no good
for my purpose because they are limited to ascii.

exporting a matrix to disc doen’t work because that adds
jitter-specific headers and stuff, and i want to write files for other
apps to read…

am I missing the obvious ?

thanks for any pointers,
ciao,

Joost.

aha,

that looks like the right thing.

yet another reason to start learning java, I guess.
I haven’t so far because current projects don’t really need it
(although I suspect it would significantly speed up some calculations
which are quite cumbersome in max/jitter), but i guess for this project
i’ll have to jump…

thanks for pointing this out.

thanks,

Joost.
