Lingo in a Nutshell

by Bruce Epstein

Lingo in a Nutshell is an indispensable Desktop Quick Reference that teaches you everything about Lingo from the ground up. It covers Lingo syntax, handlers, variables, data types, expressions, repeat loops, if...then statements, events, messages, mouse and keyboard events, timers, lists, File IO, Behaviors, child objects, and more. It includes a Lingo Command Reference of every Lingo element by topic.

It includes dozens of undocumented commands and parameters omitted from Macromedia's documentation and alerts you to commandsthat behave differently in Director 6 and 6.5 than in prior versions. For full coverage of Lingo in D7, see the companion volume Director in a Nutshell.

This book is a must-have for every Lingo developer, and is priced at only $24.95. You get twice the information of other books at half the price. (Do the math!)
