I'm thinking of picking up this project again. I finally wrote documentation for Ask. I'm trying to keep the documentation understandable for someone with only a marginal programming background (i.e. may have touched a C-based programming language or similar in the past or just started.)

I'm looking for feedback on this documentation (suggestions via post, ping, or PR are welcome!)

I'm also looking for clean (as clean as you can get with this language >.>) demo programs.

You can easily relocate your input (In lieu of input commands, I'm using the "modify this program with input values" technique) to the top of the program using Skip commands. I created a trivial multiplication program here. It's a model Village program, about as clean as it gets. I'm playing with the idea of named labels at some point, so that users viewing without line numbers don't have to count. You can just load it into the interpreter though.

_iPho: cool! I still can't make this work for me, maybe I'm not using the right case?
