Which appears as:

Link Text

Important: Do not create that page or click on that link!
Notice that we use the book name as the main directory and that we replace spaces with underscores ("_").

Inserting Code[edit | edit source]

To insert code in book text, enclose it in <code></code> and make sure that every line starts with a space. Doing so correctly will result in something that looks like this:

 PRINT "I can count to 100!"
 FOR i = 1 TO 100

Signatures[edit | edit source]

Signatures are used to tell people who wrote what, or to mark something as their text. They should not, however, be found in the general text. This is a community effort, and there is no need to clutter text with signatures. You should only use your signature for opinionated areas, pages you created (use it once, to show yourself as 'controller' of that page, as most of the knowleadge should have come from you).

To place a signature, you must first be logged in. Although you can create and edit pages without an account, it is highly recommend you create one. Without an account you cannot place signatures.

Simply insert --~~~~ where you want your signature or click on the signature button above the textarea, 2nd button from the right. A signature looks like this:

Editing Rules[edit | edit source]

There are a few rules that must be followed to make this book work. Without rules, there would be chaos. Being the starter of the book I have assumed responsibility for it's upkeep and therefore will organize it and set it's guidelines. Not to say that someone else couldn't help me! These are the rules for editing this book:

  • Creating A Page
    • Don't create a page you're not going to fill it in yourself
    • Never expect someone else to check behind you. Check your work!
    • Pages you create are not your page. It may be edited, changed, even completely removed if needed
    • A page should really be a 'Chapter', meaning it should be organized and sectioned
  • Other Rules
    • Anything with opinion to it should be marked with your signature. Please login and use an account while editing this book
