[chuck-users] The ChucK Method Book

Just wanted to let you know I am still reading, and this book is amazing,
and should be sold for *megabux$$$ *^_^

But seriously, it would be a dream come true for you to release a book like
this for chuck. The severe lack of material on ChucK as a language has led
me to read through a large manual, using it as my only source of
information, and not a reference guide, as it was intended to be. The manual
is a terrible choice for newbies to programming and audio synthesis because:

a. It is very dry and includes almost no examples

b. It assumes prior programming knowledge and understanding of many concepts
in music synthesis as well

For these two reasons alone, I must urge you, PLEASE make this book. It is
very sad that a language as amazing language like chuck lacks a
comprehensive guide for learning the language, from a
complete beginner's point of view.

Thank you so much for considering! :D


PS When I finish the book, I will let you know which examples I found most
helpful, and which I think should be included in ChucK's book, if you are to
write it. It may take a while, because of school, but I will get through it
soon enough :)
