using coll and retreiving a list and not SYMBOL?


    Feb 24 2013 | 10:04 pm
    Dear all, I try to make M4L read a file that contains steps information and fill automatically my live.grid.
    I have a text file (the steps...): 0, "1 1 1, 3 1 1"; 1, "5 1 1, 9 1 1"; 2, "1 1 1, 5 1 1, 9 1 1, 13 1 1";
    I use the function coll to gather the list of steps "1 1 1, 3 1 1", etc..
    the issue is that coll sends me back the following results: SYMBOL 1 1 1, 3 1 1 and I don't know how to manipulate this answer, this result? I was expecting to get "1 1 1, 3 1 1"
    I tried to convert SYMBOL into a list using the function 'fromsymbol' but the output is "SYMBOL", there is not the list 1 1 1, 3 1 1, ... I got only SYMBOL :-(
    hum, I know I am a dummy! can you help? I put the patch below :-)
