Having found the Io language, I am very pleased. After Googling a little, I saw that the web does not offer very much in the way of resources. Which was fine by me, because I just Skyped a friend of mine, who walked me through the basic bits, defining the fine print for me.
The trouble came today, after reading and thinking a bit more. I am currently on Windows with Io, which hampers my progress a bit. The examples in the Apps dir do not run, as
ResourceManager.io somehow can not be found.
I tried to solve this by adding all dirs with Io-stuff to my path, but to no avail.
Perhaps I should copy the file to a the same dir as the caller. Result: the included files are found, but after a few copying more and more stuff into the same dir I got another type of error:
TextureGroup: missing textures in set Buttons/PushLabel Line Char Message
doString 131 3488 raise("TextureGroup", "missing textures )...
Calc 5 70 Button
Importer 38 1084 find(thisMessage name)

doString 13 268 setTexturesPath("Buttons/Push")
doString 10 228 openSet(path)
doString 25 773 loadGroupNamed(path)
- What are these Buttons?
- What is a Texture?
- How do I manipulate Io to add along lines of my PATH?
