About This Part

This part defines the specifications of the urbiscript language version 2.0. It defines the expected behavior from the urbiscript interpreter, the standard library, and the SDK. It can be used to check whether some code is valid, or browse urbiscript or C ++ API for a desired feature. Random reading can also provide you with advanced knowledge or subtleties about some urbiscript aspects. This part is not an urbiscript tutorial; it is not structured in a progressive manner and is too detailed. Think of it as a dictionary: one does not learn a foreign language by reading a dictionary. The urbiscript Tutorial (Listing II), or the live urbiscript tutorial built in the interpreter are good introductions to urbiscript.

This part does not aim at giving advanced programming techniques. Its only goal is to define the language and its libraries.
