Loading text files

Making my way through the Loading text files from the hard drive recipe from the Processing 2 Creative programming cookbook source code on GitHub.

In this recipe, I learned how to use the loadStrings() function to load a text file from my hard drive into the String array. I also learned how to loop through the array in the draw() function and then use the number of characters in each line of text to calculate the diameter for the ellipse to be drawn.

The Silhouette Story. Chapter 4 – Mesh

The Silhouette Story started from a response to a blog post. Then came Chapter 1 – My hand which was closely followed by Chapter 2 – The sun and the street light. It wasn’t long before the suburban silhouette of Chapter 3 – Some birds on some wires was published. Now, Chapter 4 – Mesh has been written.
