Examples

(
// write a test file:
f = File("SemiColonTest.sc", "w");
f.write(
"Some semi-colon delimited data;

123;;4;
0.5;0.6;0.7
"
);
f.close;
)


    // open file, read and put strings into array, close file.
x = SemiColonFileReader.read("SemiColonTest.sc").postcs;

    // can skip empty lines:
x = SemiColonFileReader.read("SemiColonTest.sc", true).postcs;

    // can skip blank entries caused by multiple commas:
x = SemiColonFileReader.read("SemiColonTest.sc", true, true).postcs;

    // do file open/close by hand if you prefer:
f = File("SemiColonTest.sc", "r"); f.isOpen;
t = SemiColonFileReader(f);
t.read;
f.close;

(
// write a test file with numbers:
f = File("SemiColonTestNum.sc", "w");

(1..10).do { |n| f.write(n.asString ++ ";"); };
f.close;
)

x = SemiColonFileReader.read("SemiColonTestNum.sc").postcs;
x.collect(_.collect(_.interpret));    // convert to numbers.

    // or you can do it immediately:
x = SemiColonFileReader.readInterpret("SemiColonTestNum.sc").postcs;

(
// write a test file with numbers:
f = File("SemiColonTestNum.sc", "w");

(1..100).do { |n|
    f.write(n.asString ++ if (n % 10 != 0, $;, Char.nl)); };
f.close;
)


x = SemiColonFileReader.readInterpret("SemiColonTestNum.sc").postln;
