  • Section: Defining quips

    The most fundamental concept in the extension is the "quip". Quips are values, not things; they are used to index into the quip tables.

    Thus, the one task we must always perform is filling in the Table of Quip Texts. A default table is provided by the extension, so you will need to continue the table in your own code:

        Table of Quip Texts (continued)
      quip  quiptext  
      greeting  "'Why, hello there!'"  
      discuss weather  "'Looks like rain, or my name isn't George Washington.'"  
      standoff  "'What's it to you, Mac?'"  
      silence  "You decide to remain silent for the moment."
