File Input add to ASL in Build 1321
« on: March 15, 2018, 11:34:47 pm »

Build build 1321 dated March 15, 2018 supports text file input in ASL Object Command scripts.

The ASL spec has been updated to show the new features. I've attached some sample files as well with a bit of explaination.

file_read_obj.a8s - imports .obj data files.
file_read_tokenize.a8s - lists the contents of a file as tokens.

Here's a link to the part of the spec that describes how to use the text scanner.

Anim8or can prompt the user for the out file name and location with the #file Directive in an Object Command or an Untyped Command script.

Will there be a binary scanner some day? And what about output?

Awesome! I'm looking at creating an svg/eps import plugin using this new feature. Has spline creation via ASL been implemented yet?
