Would it be possible to allow a string to stand in for a ‘line’ in a lines job?
My tests say it’s not currently possible, though my tests are not renowned for reliability.
Understood. The script is a growing magnificence of cogs and wheels that ascribes variables appropriately to punishments. Each new addition is like a round of Mousetrap! (Ever played that?)
No, I haven't played Mousetrap.
Just an advice: Try to keep it as simple as possible. A complicated script is difficult to maintain. Like any other program.
The advice is appreciated. Simplicity isn’t easy, is it? Who was it who said “If I’d had more time I would have made this letter shorter?” I think Blaise Pascal. Or so they say.
I ain’t him. After five or six months working with VM I’m still a kid in a toyshop. A lot of my script is simple enough, with padding for randomisation, but much fun comes from tracking behaviour and reincorporating events. I dream up intricate systems of variables requiring swathes of administrative script, and much of this may turn out to be too complex for its own good, or simply beyond my mental pay-grade. Producing a holistic user experience will take time, and it may well require that I aim lower!
Anyway, if it seems I’m ignoring your advice, call it beginner exuberance.
Not sure I get the EXPAND reference, although maybe I do. Ew!
Also not sure I can add much to your repertoire – some of my favourite ideas have come from you and SubParProgrammer. But in short, yes. Is it possible to PM on this platform, or do we need to exchange mails?
