how to decide what input provides the biggest number?

    May 06 2010 | 6:27 pm
    I have four streams of data, and I want to do realtime analysis of which data stream that provides the biggest numbers.
    So far I have made a really clumpsy solution with an if-statement: if$i1>$i2 && $i3 then bang
    The problem is that I have to bang the if-statement for input 2 and 3 aso. It soon becomes a pain to deal with more than 2 3 datas treams.
    I wonder if there is a list object that can tell at what position in a list the highest value is ...

      have a look at [zl sort] and [zl slice]

      Lpeak from the Lobjects does this.

      Thanks, yes, I know how to find the biggest number, but what I want to do is to find out from which inlet the biggest number came from (at which position in the list is the biggest number) ...

      Thanks for Lpeak, this is just what I was looking for;-)

      use the right outlet from [zl sort] to get the index...

      FWIW, maximum object outputs the highest value and it's index.

      I always forget that you can send lists to [maximum]... thanks for that one
