Primitives table with help text.

Post by MSandro » May 22nd, '18, 08:13

Hi, during my attempts to understand GP better, I came across the block (primitives) that outputs an array of all primitive commands. In combination with (primitiveHelpString '') I used GP to print a table with all the primitives and their help text.
A few did not have any help text, I added a short comment there.
I hope that helps those who deal with the functioning of GP.


Because I can't upload .csv files, I've added .gp as file extension. Remove ".gp" and open the file with your prefered spreadsheet program.
Here is the file:

Thank you, that is interresting, I thought GP can access more than only about 300 primitives :(
It would be nice if we could extend GP at C level to add new primitives, for example for simpler interfaces with external programming languages such as Python or Lua, or generally to better interact with the operating system.

Great news! In the v254 (v083 library), there is now the exec primitive which lets you interact with other programs on the operating system
