Not sure if such a tool exists already, here the idea.

I guess there are already tools which can export single patterns to text or .csv form. Now the extension of this idea would be not doing it only for a single pattern, but all patterns in the sequence view, in exact this order. (Empty columns of patterns could be ignored.)

That could be great tool for learning purposes. Just converting multiple songs in such text form, then using grep for searching some commands you would like to learn more about. How various songs were using those commands, I am thinking of emacs power applied on those text files.

Anything related available already?

Great suggestion. Emacs power in the pattern editor would be unreal. I mean, if we could get something like org mode going for the pattern editor, I think we might create a rift in the space time continuum.

If you haven't seen org mode, it's about as magical as text editing gets. And yes. Text editing is magical.

Ever since I got my feet underneath me in vim, the pattern editor has been looking wan to me.

Yes, org-mode user here. Indeed having .org file representation could be great, each pattern a topic, so you could even move around patterns, if there would be a way backwards, from .txt/.org to .xm for example.

Thats a job for matlab/octave or python. Main obstacle is to write a reader for the binary file.

hey, in the older buzztools I have found an overloader utility. Don't know if you can export as text/ascii.
its in this pack:

Perhaps it works with older versions of buzz only.
