[chuck-users] New to ChucK: can this be done easily?

Hi Forrest.

Yes, it's quite possible in ChucK.
The FileIO method has several examples in the io/ folder. It's quite straightforward to use.
You may have to hack a tokenizer for csv. Have a look at strops.ck and strops2.ck in the string/ examples folder to see what's possible.

I want to read in a line, and then smoothly change the frequency and amplitude values using linear interpolation over the course of 24000 samples (a half second at 48k samples per second), then read in the next line, and smoothly change to those values over the next half-second, etc. until the data runs out.

But I'm hoping there's some way to tell ChucK "I want this (e.g. frequency) value to change smoothly from its current value to f1 over the course of a half-second". If that were possible, ChucK would be a clear choice for my project.
