  • Chapter: Including Glimmr Canvas-Based Drawing in a project

    Inform remains fairly unsophisticated in its mechanisms for organizing included extensions. When we are dealing with a complex system of modular extensions such as Glimmr, it is very easy to trip it up, and the result is usually a list of unhelpful errors. For this reason, each Glimmr extension includes a section--such as this one--about how to include it, particularly in relation to other extensions.

    GCBD should be included before any font or tileset extensions, e.g.:

        Include Glimmr Canvas-Based Drawing by Erik Temple.
        Include Glimmr Image Font by Erik Temple.

    You should not include Flexible Windows, Fixed Point Maths, or Glimmr Drawing Commands in your project if you are using GCBD; GCBD includes these automatically.
