I'd like to plot a large number of circles on the screen (say 10000 or more) at a set of (x,y) locations defined on a grid. I'm wondering what would be the best way of approaching this problem in Pd? I could prefix my (x,y) pairs with a counter and then create a [route] object with 10000 outlets, each connected to a [translateXYZ] and [circle] object. However, this type of approach does not seem very practical/scalable (and I don't want to connect 10000 outlets by hand). I could accomplish this fairly easily in Processing (with a few lines of code), but I'm not sure the best way of doing this in Pd/GEM/gridflow.
Any help would be much appreciated!
