I am trying to save some scripting in a coll object, so the contents/objects of the patch can be saved and recalled by the user. The script contains the symbol # (eg. #0abstraction). When coll writes the script, all the # symbols are converted to $ symbols in the text file (??!). When coll reads the txt file, the following message appears: "error:coll: :errors in text file in line 23."
Line 23 in this case is the line where the first $ symbol appears. Coll wont read beyond this line.
If I edit the txt file with the text edit program and change the $ symbols to the original # symbols, then coll reads the file correctly, though coll will change again those # to $. Why such a fixation? Why the errors?
