Planetccrma has been including recent releases of SC3, with relevant
plugins and related packages, in the package 'supercollider-world'.

afaik, none of the standard linux-dists (Fedora, Ubuntu, Centos...)
provides a supercollider-package as such, however its easy to install
from source.

SC3 is a text-based programming environment for real-time DSP (also on
osx).  You can set up guis for control or visual feedback on both

Its not command-line as such, usually you control SC through a
client-program - sclang - which is an interactive interpreter ++

The only functional version is SC3.

    D> 4. Where is the 'canonical' documentation?


Good luck!
