    Tutorial Update: 11-25-09

    I worked on the Introduction article. Though I made a lot of changes, the gist of what the article previously said is still there. I did take out the paragraph for the advanced user. That paragraph seemed out of place. Perhaps what it described can be mentioned in an advanced tutorial.

    • I changed the title "Basic tutorial" to "Welcome to the Beginner Tutorial."
    • I changed the subheading "How to Use" to "Directory Structure."
    • I changed the title of the tutorial (column on the left) from "Beginning" to "Beginner."


    I don't know how much of the Looping lesson was done for this update, for that was several days ago. However, it is complete up through FOR NEXT. I will either add a section for DO LOOP and WHILE WEND or write a whole other lesson. Haven't decided yet.

    Tutorial Update: 11-26-09

    I wanted to include today's changes with yesterday's upload, but my wife was pushing me out the door, and I didn't get around to it until today.

    I revised the two lessons on variables, correcting the grammar, mostly. I added a few words here and there to make the lessons more understandable and explained. I also added an illustration about variable scope to help ones who have never programmed before understand a little better ... hopefully.

    Happy Coding!
