accumulating characters into strings

    Nov 16 2011 | 9:50 pm
    I'm working on a piece where you type text into a text box and it makes a piece.
    When it plays back the piece its made I'd like to get it to read the text back into the text box. I've got it to do it backwards adding a character to the front of the string and I've got it doing it (badly) forwards. Can anyone think of a fool proof way of getting a character to be added like that i.e.:
    c then a becomes ca
    then an t is added
    cat etc.
    Hope this makes sense, the characters are called back from a coll object at specific times (this all works reliably).
    Thanks in advance.

      this works badly too, but it may help you get on your way
      the only problem it has is that you need the first character to come in through 'init value' - once that is set all the other ones come through nicely
      Can you post your patch?

      Is there a reason that doesn't work with spaces?

      Try to use the "strcat" object from the "jasch objects" works for me:

      this isn't it either, but maybe a few ideas. possibly [regexp] will be needed somewhere too.
