I am trying to debug a Max patch that does video analysis. For some reason many of the exported text files containing the analysis results contain exactly 4314 lines. This is an odd number for a computer program to dislike, so I am currently going through the patch to figure out what is wrong.
The first thing I thought about was the text object, which is used for storing the data and write to a text file. So to check the possible limitations of the object, I have made a small patch that writes lines of 60 random values. It turns out, however, that the text object easily handles 1 000 000 lines of random values, and manage to write the file to disk (366.9 MB).
So I continue my quest for the problem. I attach a screenshot of the code below for people that may be interested in this. The code may also be useful if you want to generate huge files with random numbers.
