Additional Elements

In this chapter, we present some additional elements of the Antescofo language that do not fit in the previous chapters:

  • the track mechanism which allows the disabling of some messages during a program run;

  • the organization of a large score into several files;

  • the evaluation that can be performed when a score is loaded;

  • the compilation of functions;

  • the use and the “evaluation” of symbols;

  • the substitution of an arbitrary computation to messages thank to callback messages;

  • and the association of handlers to perform a computation when some internal event occurs through event callbacks.
