Alambik Script®

Although Alambik® Script is a natural scripting language, you may end up sooner or later scratching your head, wondering what went wrong with your coding. Should this happen, by all means don't panic! Keep your cool, take a deep breath, and follow these easy steps:

Debug:

The interpreter checks for syntax errors whenever you run a script.

If your script succeeds in being "interpreted," this means it's syntax error-free. Of course, being free of errors doesn't mean that your script can't be further optimized! The interpreter cannot check for runtime errors such as "file not found" or "out of array." Click here for a complete list of Error Messages.

If you need information to aid in your debugging, you can use the following instructions to display any strings or values in the output buffer of the editor.

text.debug ($string)
number.debug (%num)
number.debug (!float,"")

Share your work with others:

Another great way to improve your script is to share it with other Alambik scripters. The Alambik community exchanges scripts (and other info) on the official Alambik Club board, as well as on many unofficial boards opening throughout the world (in the USA, Turkey, etc).
