I think Brett's onto a winner too. I like your list of dialog functions. I'd
add (maybe in version 2.0) things like:
PAUSE -- Stops executing the script, perhaps with a message telling the user
to do something in the playing-app and then hit resume in the player, e.g.
PAUSE "Please enter the FTP password and press Okay. Then click Resume "
DISABLE UPDATES -- We redefine 'Write, 'Delete, 'Make-dir and 'Send (and
probably more) to do nothing so demos can run "safely" (not all played-apps
could lose their i/o and still work -- some will fall over rereading data --
but many could).
We may also want to disable other things, such as 'Wait within the played-app.
ENABLE UPDATES --
HALT -- with options to leave the played-app running, or to have shut it down.
INCLUDE xxx.r -- take next set of playback commands from xxx.r so we can
build complex scripts from simpler ones
Dare I suggest a name for this application....?
Either the obvious Reboil --- as you can automatically bring any application
to the boil as often you like with a script.
Or the archaicly poetic Reboant --- to echo, loudly (with hints of a Rebol
worker ant beavering away for us).
