[REBOL] Re: Make_user_manual.r ?

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). Sunanda.
