     Squish is a Quoth[1] app. Quoth evaluates English as Smalltalk code
(roughly as a sequence of unary messages, with mild gymnastics for
punctuation). It guides a finite state machine, invoking side-effects at
some states. It's implemented with anonymous classes that represent the
states. The original version runs over a telnet connection, and I'm
writing a WebSockets version. It's not in a public repo yet; I mostly
use Quoth for musical livecoding onstage.

     The most recent demo of Quoth is a movie[2] for the Computer Music
Journal's first special issue on musical livecoding.
