You're welcome.

Incidentally, if you're interested in CLM, you might want to have a
look at a blog posting I made a while back:

It discusses a course at Stanford University that is using CLM &
SLIME. On the links from that entry, you can get to info on the course
material, computer music, CLM, Common Music, a SLIME tutorial and
other goodies.

If you want to learn more about using SLIME, it is worth your while to
read the SLIME manual too. As with most technical documentation, it
makes more sense once you've used the software a bit, but it is quite
readable. ;-)

Of course, the "definitive" SLIME tutorial is the movie that Marco
Barringer made. I comment and link to that here:
