7.1. Creating a Function File

Function files are created and edited, like script files, in the Editor/Debugger Window. This window is opened from the Command Window. In the File menu, select New, and then select Function. Once the Editor/Debugger Window opens, it looks like that shown in Figure 7-1. The editor contains several pre-typed lines that outline the structure of a function file. The first line is the function definition line, which is followed by comments the describe the function. Next comes the program (the empty lines 4 and 5 in Figure 7-1), and the last line is an end statement, which is optional. The structure of a function file is described in detail in the next section.

Note: The Editor/Debugger Window can also be opened (as was described in Chapter 1) by selecting Script after New. The window that opens is empty, without any pre-typed lines. The window can be used for writing a script file or a function file. If the Editor/Debugger Window is opened by selecting Function after New, it can also be used for writing a script file or a function file.
