i think its on several cds but in general if you cant double-click it
its not there. not having a gui "app" is a huge hurdle for most
people to climb over then you add lisp syntax on top of that, well...
on osx the cm.app helps (you double-click an icon in /Applications
and up pops cm under Aquamacs, which is very easy to use) perhaps i
could figure out how to do a double-clickable app in linux, but when
i looked at it several years ago it seemed each desktop had a
different approach and i gave up.
longer term, maybe JUCE and ECL will make it possible to integrate
plotting, notation and text-based algorithmic compostion into a
realtime cm that works on all three operating systems. sal is much
easier to work with than lisp and you can do 95% of what you do
without dealing with quote or prefix notation. so who knows.
