Expression helper
Mar 28th, 2009, 10:49am
 
Most spreadsheet programs contain a helper for writing formulas. The helper will not only provide a list of available commands but will also explain what the commands do, the elements necessary to make them work and an example or two.

I wonder, would such a thing be possible to include in Tinderbox for the actions and rules windows associated with agents and adornments?

If so, I think it would help newbies like me to become oriented with the program more quickly and to stop bothering the Marks with what I can only assume are the most elemental sorts of questions.

It does take a little while to get the hang of Tinderbox syntax, and you can find a helpful resource in the Tinderbox application under

Help > Tinderbox Users' Manual

If you go to page 116, you will see a discussion of Agents and a discussion of agent query syntax starting on page 118.
