gary hiebner ;

I have tried in miniAudicle, and everything works fine there,

To add to Andrew's explanation; if it works for you in the miniAudicle then
you are almost there. The thing to realise is that the mini uses one or a
few windows to contain the ChucK code. We sometimes call these "editing
buffers". These buffers contain code and they are analogous to files. Where
we would tell the mini to run the code in one of these buffers we tell plain
ChucK to run the code that is in a file that was previously saved.

Code goes into files. These files then get send to ChucK. We don't
(typically) send the code straight into ChucK though we may use a editor
like the Mini to take care of the link for us. The process behind the scenes
is the same, the Mini just makes it more convenient. There is one downside
to these buffers that "pretend to be files"; if you would crash the Mini
because you crash ChucK then you also lose all unsaved buffers while you
won't crash plain ChucK in a way that makes you lose your files on your
drive (at least I never heard of this happening)-

I hope this clarifies, don't hesitate to ask more; both ChucK and a terminal
can look a bit intimidating at first, especially if you are trying to get to
grips with both at the same time.
