[CM] cm rendering audio through csound in real time?

If I name my fifo 'fefi.sco' I ought to be able to write to it from Grace
... but so far I'm not succeeding.

I'm assuming (!) Grace would open this in 'append' mode (?)

and have some provision for closing the file. Exiting the program? Stopping

So far, no luck! ?
