Chapter 12. Other Lingo Flavors > Other Lingo horizons

Other Lingo horizons

As you continue to bound up the learning curve, several more flavors of Lingo await your discovery. Here's an advance notice of pending encounters:

  • List Lingo and parent script Lingo are topics for chapters to come (Chapters 16 and 18, to be exact). They're both concerned with entities residing entirely in RAM, which can have multiple components and characteristics when necessary.

  • Shockwave and Shockwave audio Lingo pertain to playback and media manipulation within the context of Shockwave movies and networked environments (the Internet, intranets, and so on). Since they often have to interact with other applications (such as Web browsers), other languages (such as HTML), and other operating systems (such as UNIX), such Lingo can be tricky to puzzle out and sometimes employs a syntax not seen in other Lingo. We'll examine this type starting in Chapter 15: Deeper into Shockwave.
