compileorc

compileorc — compiles a new orchestra from an ASCII file

Description

Compileorc will compile one or more instruments at init time, which will be added to the running engine. In case of existing instrument numbers or names, these will be replaced, but any instance still running of the old instrument definition will still perform until it terminates.

Syntax

ires compileorc Sfilename

Initialization

Sfilename -- a string containing the name of the file containing the orchestra.

ires -- returns 0 if compilation was successful, or -1 if not.

Examples

Here is an example of the compileorc opcode. It uses the file compileorc.csd.
