Please forgive me if this is a dumb question, I'm new to ChucK.  Is 
there documentation of any kind for the language besides the lex/yacc 
files and the short tutorial?  I've been wondering if all the control 
structures from C++ are there, e.g., switch statements, break, etc.  
Also, is there anyway to access the underlying OS, as in Perl?  For 
that matter, a Perl module that can control ChucK, but can also give 
you a robust language might be pretty neat.

Thanks for the great work,
