Development history of Finto in 2012
2012-11-29 (start of version A-00)
Start. First prototype. It works great!
Syntactic sugar, synonyms and abbrs for the narrative. Passage visits count field. Subpassages. Config variables for the keyword's color and marks. If the keyword has a trailing punctuation char, it's removed. Different optional marks for the start and the end of printed keywords.
Simpler syntax for (sub)passages. The old one was:
:passage ( definition ) ; passage-id passage!
The new one is:
passage-id :passage ( definition ) ;passage
Clearer definition and management of the keywords table.
Clearer code for command input.
Refactorized code for passage and subpassage definitions.
Fixed: if the last char of a keyword is a punctuation char, it's not included in the link marks.
Configurable link colors.
Configurable link uppercaseness.
Case insensitive: Keywords and commands are converted to lowercase.
this value is implemented in (sub)passage definitions.
passages counter is updated every time a passage id is created.
A link is created only when its maximum number of visits has not been reached.
Keywords are copied (with
>sb) to the string buffer before storing. Otherwise they may be modifed in their original location in the dictionary.
3drop was missing.
keyword! stored the keyword before changing it to lowercase.
-trailing_punctuation checks empty strings; this finally makes empty links possible.
