Re: Creating a LiveCode User Interface Programmatically

Actually, I had a bash at creating an interface programmatically in LiveCode
in 2004:

I was fairly cheesed-off today when someone suggested that to generate a square, random map
would be long and difficult, if not impossible in LiveCode.

Re: Scrolling around

Jacque nailed it.
No, I don't think she nailed "it."

What she did do is nail one way of achieving the goal.

As you can see, I nailed another way.

This is one of the marvellous features of LiveCode; many roads leading to, err, Rome? :D

Re: Coming in 9.x

Locale (noun) = the area itself. Really? You don't say! As a native speaker of "British" English, and an EFL teacher for about 30 years I knew that, so don't . . . My 'problem' was about the phrase "Increased Locale Sensitivity", as I have no idea how one can be sensitive about an area . . . Obviou...

Re: Coming in 9.x

"Yamil Library" (err . . . isn't that "Tamil"?)

He waited and waited for the chief in the hotel, and while he ...

OK, OK; let's get "down and dirty" about 'power' and 'exponent' . . . This could also be retitled "Richmond's School days revisited" . . . which is, frankly, a mixed blessing.

NO! How about something like this: Left operand contains non-numeric char . And that, forbye, leads me onto ask how one determines whether a char is a number, an alphabetic something, an operator or something else (sic as a carriage return).
