readTable functions

Syntax

string[] readStringTable(filePath)

float[] readFloatTable(filePath)

Parameters

Returns

The content of filePath as a 2D array.

Description

The readTable functions read the CSV file filePath into a 2D array. The delimiter is detected automatically; common delimiters (including commas, semi-colons, tabs, and spaces) will work. Supported encodings are ASCII, UTF-8 and UTF-16. Unprintable control characters are replaced with '?'. The float version readFloatTable is equivalent to floatArray(readStringTable(....)) but the converted table is cached.

const table      = readStringTable(file)
const floatTable = readFloatTable(file)

CGARef-->
	print("Table (strings)")
	print(table)
	print("element at row 1, col 4: " + table[1, 4])
	print("Table (float)")
	print(floatTable)
	print("element at row 1, col 4: " + floatTable[1, 4])
