  • Chapter - Transcript control

    [The Inform library directs only input from the main window to the transcript by default. This rule sends output from both of our windows to the transcript. It also recreates the library output. To change the standard library output, you can replace this rule with one of your own.]

    Activating the transcript is an activity.

    For activating the transcript (this is the transcript activation rule):
        echo the stream of the current text output window to the transcript;
        echo the stream of the current text input window to the transcript;
        say "Start of a transcript of[line break]";
        consider the announce the story file version rule.
