Hi there, I have created a notebook system modelled off the example ‘The Fifth Body’ with the same jotter system. The external file is the File of Notetaking called ‘notestwo’.
I read the file with "say “You read: [paragraph break][text of the file of notetaking]”.
This worked fine in the Gluxe interpreter and it works fine in Inform in the testing window, but when I put it through the Vorple interpreter, instead of:
|* //VORPLE// notestwo
|* //D9E467E6-D36F-4C72-A55F-8E8FBDD618B3// notestwo
Any idea how to make it so ‘the file of notetaking’ only returns the appended text (notebook entries) in Vorple rather than all the header stuff?
EDIT: The solution below partially worked, but then I discovered that every time I appended new text to the file there would be another “VORPLE//notestwo” line. So I ended up with:
To read (pad - a jotter): if Vorple is not supported: say "You read:[paragraph break][text of text file of the pad]"; otherwise: let file text be "[text of text file of the pad]"; let G be the number of lines in file text; let K be G / 2 + 2; repeat with N running from K to G: say "[line number N in file text][line break]".
Seems to be working perfectly now
