readfloat32()

    Hi, does readfloat32 take care of parsing whitespace etc. for you? Or do you have to seek to the first number in the text file and then call that method?
    thanks, wes

      Sounds like you'll want to use string's parseFloat() method or some other regexp based solution. readfloat32() is for reading binary floats from files (and in MaxMSP 4.5.7, only in platform native byte ordering, fixed in the next Max release).
