In this session we start to look more in depth at the structure of Vectorscript. It is really important to understand that there is a structure (syntax) that must be followed. Failure to comply with the rules of Vectorscript will cause it to fail.
We also looked at how to get started with planning your Vectorscript. The generic phrase for this is to create a flowchart, but there is also a system called the Unified Modeling Language. The UML takes the flowchart idea and gives it a unified structure.
- Basic Vectorscript structure (syntax)
- procedure delcaration
- BEGIN/END requirements

- variables – strings
- variables – integer
- variables – real
- vectorscript error messages
- creating a flowchart
- writing you flowchart in as an algorithm
