That would be nice, but the code in the html documents is actually extracted and used to actually generate the examples,VanGog wrote:I already used to the differences between Unix and Windows syntax.
Note: It would be good idea to take the IM v6 html document and create Windows version by replacing all the Unix syntax differences for Windows syntax, so Windows users woundn't be confused (beginners).
on a UNIX (linux) system. It is done that way so that the code you see is the code that is used... No chance of a missmatch bettwen the code and results, at least at the time it was last generated. Any more complications to that would likely produce more problems thant it is worth.
This is also the reason why the documentation is not a Wiki. It would be very hard to convert it to a wiki form which would allos users to update.
On the other hand as I am no longer as active in IM development and exampling (life moves on, and I was active for more than 10 years), the start of a wiki of IM examples, based on the same structure as the current IM Examples, would probably be very welcome. However expect examples to break as the code evolves. That is where I actually spent a lot of my time when I was active... fixing examples and finding bugs due to checks that notifies me when some example did change significatally.
Sorry, its a bit off topic, but you mentioned it.
Perhaps you would like to start a IM example wiki
