OK I will jump in here as well.. Does anyone have a list of books for Hollywood?
I don't think there are any 3rd party books, but the Hollywood manual is very comprehensive and it's available in many formats from hypertext documents to PDF if you want to read/print it as a book. It contains all you need to know and is perfectly fine for learning the language.Quote:
Also, I am a bit fuzzy on Hollywood and LUA. What is LUA? I have a flight simulator program Eagle Dynamics Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) and I believe it uses LUA scripting pretty heavily.
Lua is a modern and lightweight scripting language, which is easily embeddable into other programs too and that's why it is used in many modern games and applications.Quote:
Sorry if these are silly questions but I have literally ZERO knowledge regarding either of these disciplines and like AmigaDave I am interested as well.
BTW. besides the Hollywood relation, Lua is also used as an ARexx replacement/successor in MorphOS, so that also makes it useful to learn it. MorphOS comes with an integrated native Lua implementation/intepreter, which can also communicate with other MorphOS/AmigaOS programs via their ARexx ports.
I have written couple basic tutorials/introductions about these topics in the MorphOS Library:Getting Started with LuaCrash Course to Hollywood Programming
