Ideas for my book.

I have referenced many books about programming over the years. I would thin
that this needs to be a multi-book set. It's hard to cover a language in a
single book. I also think that large print is needed for an actual book -
similar to the dummies Series. The nice thing about an e-Book format is the
illustrations can be interactive with copy-paste code samples.
This format is easily updated via the net and can be read with a reader of
some sort or computer.
The subject matter is very extensive and needs to be handled in digestible
As far as subject matter: Wide and varied as LiveCode can do so many things.
I believe that have given you more that you can imagine. I also think that a
master index searching section is needed. Even for sections that will be
covered in the future.
Just a thought, this could be written with LiveCode!
This is definitely a humungous task.

I think the first question should be: what assumptions will the book make?
Will you assume familiarity with LC syntax and structure and plan to expand
on various subcategories (server, pi, multi-media, etc?) Or is it aimed at
beginners who have never programmed? Or maybe it's for experienced
developers who know other languages but want to learn what's different in
That would narrow down the choices for the material you plan to present.
Who's the audience?
