[chuck-users] midiaudicle editor wishlist

have kept myself quiet just enjoying the current version of the tool. I'm
not just in love with ChucK but even more in love with MA as well. Talk
about cool and slick as hell!..

Some suggestions, would be the ability to create "projects". Usually I
create a few files on their own then "shred-em" all to what I want later. So
a way to Pre-set a project would be cool, especially when re-visiting the
files for changes, etc.

Another suggestion is obvious (as some have already asked) "Syntax
Highlighting. You know you are in love with a specific tool when you don't
mind going online or reading through the PDF to get details on the object
you're using, but, it would be pretty freaking cool if it could just tell
you what you're looking for.

Other ideas that are usually common among IDEs are things like "Class
Heirachies", "Task List (within a project)", "Code Snippets" and possibly
even some "bookmarking". These are some things that I am used to with VC++
and also with some PHP editors I use.

Just suggestions. :)
