I would definitely like to see this included in your distribution.
I'm currently working on an even more abstract Ruby layer and
eventually all this is to be glued together in an Ecasound module for
Searching the web it appeared to me that others are working in the same

anything about the author and his homepage is broken. As long as
there's nobody crying 'this is my baby' I'll keep on doing this.
There's also http://rubyforge.org/projects/canto/ but actually there's
So what do you think, Kai?
Should I keep on posting code snippets to ecasound-list or should I
wait until I feel I have something I (and others) can work with.
Or how do you think about granting someone else write access to your

which is currently the standard in Debian stable (woody) and other
distros. I'll see.

I know this document very well and I'm looking forward to adding a Ruby
