### Rosettacode

Hi,
on https://rosettacode.org/ there are many examples to fill: https://rosettacode.org/wiki/Reports:Ta ... n_LiveCode

For the 15 puzzle game I wrote the following code, what do you think? It is appropriate or guide new user to a wrong interpretation of what is livecode?
########CODE#######
#Please note that all this code can be performed in livecode with just few mouse clicks
#This is just a pure script exampe
on OpenStack
show me #Usually not necessary
#tile creation
repeat with i=1 to 16
create button
set the label of button i to i
if i =1 then
set the top of button 1 to 0
set the left of button 1 to 0
end if
if i > 1 and 1 <=4 then
set the left of button i to the right of button (i-1)
set the top of button i to the top of button 1
end if
if i >= 5 and i <= 8 then
set the top of button i to the bottom of button 1
if i = 5 then
set the left of button i to the left of button 1
else
set the left of button i to the right of button (i - 1)
end if
end if
if i >= 9 and i <= 12 then
set the top of button i to the bottom of button 5
if i = 9 then
set the left of button i to the left of button 1
else
set the left of button i to the right of button (i - 1)
end if
end if
if i >= 13 and i <= 16 then
set the top of button i to the bottom of button 9
if i = 13 then
set the left of button i to the left of button 1
else
set the left of button i to the right of button (i - 1)
end if
end if
#this is usally the script directly wirtten in the objects, it's really weird this way
put "on MouseUp" &CR& "if checkDistance(the label of me) then" & CR &"put the loc of me into temp" into ts
put CR& "set the loc of me to the loc of button 16" after ts
put CR& "set the loc of button 16 to temp" & Cr & "end if " & "End MouseUp" after ts
set the script of button i to ts
end repeat
#graphic adjustements
set the visible of button 16 to false
set the width of this stack to the right of button 16
set the height of this stack to the bottom of button 16
end openStack

function checkDistance i
if (((the top of button i - the bottom of button 16) = 0 OR (the top of button 16 - the bottom of button i) = 0) AND the left of button i = the left of button 16) OR (((the left of button i - the right of button 16) = 0 OR (the right of button i - the left of button 16) = 0) AND the top of button i = the top of button 16) then
return true
else
return false
end if
end checkDistance
