    Hi Guys,
    I am looking to basically store more that 254 strings as individually addressable items, what could I use instead of coll?
    Cheers

      Coll doesn't have a 254 item limit.

      Hi Chris,
      Oh thats good, the help for coll states that it can store 254 items, I tried to cut an paste the bit out but cutting is not supported in the help system.
      What is the stuff after ----------begin_max5_patcher---------- about?
      Thanks for your help

      the help file states that it can store lists of up to 254 items ;) so this not the number of lists it can store, but the number of maximum items in each stored list.
      1, 1 2 3 ... 253 254 2, 1 2 3 ... 253 254 3, 1 2 3 ... 253 254 ...................... ...................... 4999, 1 2 3 ... 253 254 5000, 1 2 3 ... 253 254

      Chris posted you an example, you can copy the whole thing, and then open it in Max using the "New from clipboard" menu item.
