Chapter 8. The Anatomy of Lingo > Understanding Lingo logic

Understanding Lingo logic

To get a solid grip on Lingo, we need to stop talking about it and start examining the logical assumptions upon which it's founded. Many of these assumptions drive not only Lingo but scripting languages in general, so the detour is worth taking.

So before we get further into the nuts and bolts of practical applied scripting, let's look at the conceptual framework in which Lingo operates. What follows are some broad definitions of Lingo's main building blocks, coupled with a few demonstrative experiments. I promise not to wax too technical, but to get the big picture, we need to take a plunge (albeit a shallow one) into the realm of computer science. You'll probably want to read this chapter straight through to pick up the general principles and then refer back to it for clarification as you progress in your Lingo adventures.
