Update: Here’s a more polished version of the magnetic-poetry demo, which uses a “custom function” version of the word-parsing exercise from this week:
Here’s some material to help you think through the word-parsing exercise from class today (5 October 2021). The PDF file (look for it below) contains all of the code printed out for legibility, while the gamemaker zip can be unzipped and run inside gamemaker. They are almost exactly the same body of code and comments, but the gamemaker code lacks the “arrays are tables” illustration, which I’ve included below.
Also worth looking at: This “refrigerator-magnet-poetry” prototype, which uses the word parser code we looked at today.
