Ultra Beginner Question/Request

Hello All,

I've been a programmer since the mid 70's.  I've used and/or tinkered 
with all of the "normal" procedural languages (C, Tcl, BASIC) and even 
some "ab"normal ones like Forth.  I consider myself a pretty good 
programmer and have been told I'm fairly bright in general.  I've had 
Revolution for a couple of weeks now, and I just can't seem to get my 
head around the "methodology" of using Revolution.

I'm not worried about command syntax or what controls are available.  My 
problem is how to go about DESIGNING a whole project.  I am trying to 
convert a rather large application I have in Tcl/Tk to Revolution and 
just can't seem to get started.

Are there any Revolution design documents, web pages, tutorials, etc 
that address this area?  The one page about on the runrev.com site 
having information for C programmers was not nearly enough.  I guess 
what I'd like to see is a step by step tutorial on how to start with a 
non-trivial project.  Like I said, I don't need to know how to put a 
button on a card and fire a script when it's pressed - that is very well 

Any information would be appreciated!
