SFL: Delimited Text

This is a STANDARDIZED FILE LOADER to read delimited text files.


This loader will read tab or CSV delimited data directly into waves.

Processing Modes

After loading, the loader can scale waves as though the columns are (x,y) pairs or as though they are one x + multiple y waves. The x-data are discarded in the process.

User Data

The following User Data input is supported:

  • [number ranges]: giving number ranges in brackets will load only those columns of data
udFL.userData = "[1,3,5,7-10]" will load columns 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 10 from a delimited text file.
