dump all items of [coll] or [text] or...anything into one list - at once!

    I'm surprised that dump will print all items in a coll, but won't put them all into a single message as far as I've tried. I must be doing it wrong - I thought "all at once" was kind of the meaning of dump!
    What am I missing?

      Not sure if you're after this, but you should be able to rework it.

      it would be quite useless to put more than one database entry into a symbol, list, or quasi list for further processing with maxmsp objects. that they come out individually is intended.

      A dump message to coll doesn't reformat the data, only sends it all out. If you want it collected into a list you'll have to gather it yourself"

      Thanks everyone! I get it now - totally misunderstood what was happening. Of course I only saw the last entry of the coll dump to a message box because that was the last it received, not the only message, which is what I thought was happening :P
      And yes I see it is rather useless for my current purposes to collect this all as a list. Thanks again :)
