And yes, initial compiling should best be done without the
gadgets system. Just use ET.Open <your Source file> .
Edit and compile some of the well designed examples
in the tutor.
Q. where are the examples in the tutor?
A. search for "xample" on files *.Text
-> System.Directory *.Text == .....
--> either use Find.Tool or Find.Panel
or just open each particular *.Text and use the Frame's
"Search" from its top menu to find "xample".
==> Chapter5.Text = The Programmer's Guide
These are all good/well-designed examples.
You can't avoid reading most of the Chapter*.Text
Use successive refinement: start with a simple working
example, and extend it repeatedly, to get to an interesting
[for you] destination.
