#REDIRECT [[ChucK/Features]]
* a debug/trace option and/or debugger for easier debugging and ChucK learning.
 
* [Linux] ALSA sequencer support for MIDI control.
 
* Ability to compile support for several IO schemes.
 
** Maybe by making this kind of stuff modular (welcome to plugin land).
 
* Maybe support for using/controlling LADSPA plugins? http://www.ladspa.org
 
* Include statement. Would make it easier to reuse code
 
* Ogg/Vorbis
 
* FLAC
 
* ChucK for Puredata
 
* envelope ugen capable of curved envelopes
 
* Auto-Fades for + - =
 
* ChucK as a DSSI plugin, http://dssi.sourceforge.net/
 
* Instructions/tips for people usin ChucK on Windows XP
 
**Installer for Windows (posssible installer links)
 
**http://nsis.sourceforge.net/ Nullsoft Installer
 
**http://www.programurl.com/development_tools_linder_setupbuilder.htm
 
**http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Programming/ActiveX/Install_Wizard.html
 
**http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php#features
 
* when using --add print out the status line (to VM console)
 
* Function pointer types, so that sporked code can be pointed at controls as well as ugens.
 
* anonymous function blocks. e.g. spork ~ { dosomething }. Why? becuase it would be really useful for scoring multiple voices when playing melodic instruments. Makes it possible to easily write scores in ChucK.
 
* Either support for include files, or support for #line directives in the parser so that a C preprocessor can be used.
 
* support for timed OSC messages.
 
* Ability to pass in command-line parameters: Place any command-line arguments of the form "NAME=VALUE" into the environment, so that they it be access with getenv(). (or maybe -"-defineNAME=VALUE"). Or both.
 
== Good Ideas ==
 
* arrays ('''DONE''')
 
* file inclusion (header files)
 
* objects ('''DONE''')
 
* synchronous / asynchronous events ('''DONE''')
 
* implicit casting ('''DONE''')
 
* global value map
 
* shred local adc/dac
 
* cross chucking
 
** what is cross chucking?
 
* stereo ('''DONE''')
 
* multi-channel
 
** wow, it's only mono? (not anymore!)
 
* OSC (OpenSound Control) ( '''SOME''' )
 
* [[automatic OSC address spaces]] ;  /machine/shred[1]/variables/foo    , /machine/add  (''' ON THE WAY ''')
 
* midi parsing/routing object ( '''SOME''' )
 
* [[sndbuf]] proper sndbuf / sndplayer / sndrecorder collection
 
* duration expressions
 
* widgets ( once visuals are up )
 
* synchronization
 
* ability to remove a shred AND the shreds it sporked (its children) from the command line. ('''DONE''')
 
 
 
== (potential) parallel efforts ==
 
* GLucK (OpenGL for ChucK) this is almost ready for release
 
 
 
* TrucK: ChucK to C/C++ translator (for embedded platforms, and for non-on-the-fly native compilation). Paul Botelho and I talked about this last night.  (I just now made up the name)
 
** Would it be possible to run it on processors without floating point support, like StrongARM / Xscale?
 
 
 
== Bad Ideas ==
 
* make ChucK more like COBOL
 
 
 
* MucK: okay, this is going further into la-la land.  MATLAB / ChucK extension.<br/>Diemo Schwarz and I had once envisioned this renegade concept of doing analysis in MATLAB and (somehow) using ChucK from within MATLAB to quickly (and concurrently) playback/synthesize/audisize on-the-spot.  I wonder if anyone still wishes for this.
 
 
 
* MUSHCK: Multi-User Shared Hallucination ChucK. Multiple users can log in to the VM process, chat with each other and interact with ChucK remotely, while ChucK sends audio streams back to them.
 
 
 
* SucK: we need a really bad idea to go with this.
 
 
 
* BucK: the commercial version
 
 
 
* DucK: ChucK for migrating fowl
 
 
 
* HucK: ChucK for those lazy afternoons floating down the Mississippi River
 
 
 
* JucK: ChucK running on top of Java
 
 
 
* KucK: Realtime sauerkraut generator
 
 
 
* LucK: A ChucK program that works the first time
 
 
 
* PucK: Live performance version of ChucK in which the program is controlled by hockey players.
 
 
 
* QucK: A ugen for DucK
 
 
 
* RucK: A ChucK concert given by an unemployed Wall Street television personality.
 
 
 
* TucK: Any Chuck program that generates lullabies.
 
 
 
* YucK: A ChucK program that executes correctly but which otherwise seems generally unpleasant.
