Writing Lingo Code

Director is much, much more than an animation or presentation tool. You can make full applications, Web applets, and software utilities. You can build games, educational software, and business applications. Just about anything that can be done with software can be done in Director.

The key to writing powerful software with Director is Lingo, Director's programming language. Lingo started out as a simple set of scripting commands used to control animation. Now it is a complete object-oriented language rivaling traditional ones, such as C and Pascal, as well as new languages, such as Java. Chapter 13, “Essential Lingo Syntax,” continues this discussion with a more complete list of all the important Lingo commands with which you should be familiar.
