Part II: Digging Deeper > Other Lingo Flavors

Chapter 12. Other Lingo Flavors

Lingo by categories

Other Lingo horizons

Hyperlinks

Points to remember

You've learned the central concepts of scripting and the main rules for Lingo's syntax. You've also had lots of practice using Lingo and writing handlers. In fact, you're probably surprised at just how much you can do with what you already know. Let's round out your education by introducing some new Lingo vocabulary.

In this chapter, we'll build upon your current knowledge by showing you some of the many variations of special-purpose Lingo (I like to call these "flavors"). When you expand your knowledge of the available terminology, you'll find yourself contemplating an ever-broadening panorama of programming possibilities.

As a reward, after we finish discussing text handling with Lingo, we'll take a stab at creating a movie that uses hyperlinks.
