Table table;

void setup() {

  table = new Table();
  TableRow newRow = table.addRow();
  newRow.setInt("id", table.lastRowIndex());
  newRow.setString("species", "Panthera leo");
  newRow.setString("name", "Lion");
  saveTable(table, "data/new.csv");

// Sketch saves the following to a file called "new.csv":
// id,species,name
// 0,Panthera leo,Lion
Description Table objects store data with multiple rows and columns, much like in a traditional spreadsheet. Tables can be generated from scratch, dynamically, or using data from an existing file. Tables can also be output and saved to disk, as in the example above.
