We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
Now that P3.x has a real Table class (I'm just realizing that the Visualizing Data book is a wee tad dated) I'm wondering if Tables are the way to go for my formatted table data? Are they more optimal than using "LoadStrings" and loping through? Sure feels like it!
How do they profile against rolling your own HashMaps? If the referencing by column name as fast as it feels? And "SaveTable" saves all that "writer.println" and flushing and closing... and save dozens of lines of code...
but, is it faster? or at least just as fast? I'm just trying to build a good habit, as I'm a little new to Processing.
