I'm relatively new to PD, tough I've worked a lot with MAX MSP in the past (quite far now) doing some generative music with objects (arduino and so on). Needless to say, It's been too long since I opened a patch, so right now It's quite hard to know all that is possible and not be able to do it...
Currently I'm trying to help a colleague who would like the present some data that we've extracted from users of the products that we develop. It may be a very simple sonification or visualization.
I thought it would be quite simpl,e, but honestly I'm struggling to find out just how to extract the data in the columns of our .csv into pd.
So far I've managed to use qlist and textfiles and to load the content, but the textfile window and the console really don't help me since I can't use this data and make a list or any other action.
I've made a good amount of research in the forum, but so far the only examples that I've been able to find are quite complex and it doesn't really help at this stage.
So, if anyone has a VERY simple patch (I'm afraid that even the most basic explanation at this point is confusing to me;I just found out how to copy a patch from text, so you can imagine that my skills are far beyond my intentions ) in order to help me find out how to get the data from my csv (i converted it into a .txt file with ; ) in the ACTUAL patch, either into a message, a symbol, or any other thing that I can start to work with.
Thanks to all for your kind help.
