is the completed version of the exercise in Chapter 12, which is also
used for downloading in Chapter 22.
is a simple GIF image, used as a guinea pig for the online file-access
exercise in Chapter 22.
is the text component used in the following exercise.
is a simple yet useful file that doesn't pop up in the book, but can
come in handy in your day-to-day scripting. It's nothing but a text
file of the numbers 1 through 100, each written as a single word (i.e.,
86 is "eightysix"). What's that good for? Well, if you've got a script
that grabs or monitors a specific location in a text string, you can
point it at this file to make sure it's looking in the right spot. If
a line like put word 8 of myVar turns up with "nine" when myVar contains
the countwords text, you've started to pinpoint the problem.
is an online version of the "Drum Polyrhythm 3" sound file on the Demystified
CD-ROM. It's sampled in 8 bit mono, 22.357 kHz sound, runs 22 seconds
playback length, and weighs in with a file size of 500K.
is a larger graphic (111K) in JPEG format (thanks to my sister Moana
for the digital photo). This is a good one for experimenting with downloading
in the background. For instance, try writing a script that doesn't display
the image until it's fully downloaded--make sure your script periodically
updates the status of the download.
