Programming LiveCode… 3rd Print

It’s been a while that I made any announcements about my book. I have been working on the 3rd print of “Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner” and had some issues with printing and logistics. We have sorted out all issues and now I’m happy to announce that the book is available again.

The third print of Programming LiveCode… has been updated to include a few new XML commands that were introduced in the latest stable release of LiveCode. I have also mentioned the textEncode and textDecode functions, which are going to appear in LiveCode 7. It should be clear, though, that I have kept the changes to a minimum.

It looks like LiveCode 7 would require a considerable rewrite of the book. For now, this would take me too much. Perhaps I’ll do this some time in the future, when I have sufficient spare time on my hands.

While I was trying to get the book printed again, people kept purchasing and by now most of the books have been sold already. We have only 25 copies left and we will print more in 2 months. If you don’t want to be on a waiting list, order now and we’ll send the book to you next week.

You can order the book at and more info is available at
