[chuck-users] chout and cherr confuse me [BUG?]

Hey Kas,

I'm not the expert, but I'm pretty sure that you can expect ChucK's  
handling of stdout vs stderr to be exactly the same as <insert  
favorite OS here>.  I believe that printing to stdout gets flushed  
more aggressively than printing to stdout, but the flip side is that  
printing to stdout is overall more efficient.  (That's why you see  
cherr output appear before chout.)

But the bottom line: if you've been happy with the way printing to  
stdout and stderr works your OS works, you'll be fine with ChucK.
