Scripting 3. Simple language elements

The Praat scripting language doesn't only call the menu commands discussed in the first and second chapters of this tutorial, it is only a general procedural programming language that allows you to compute numbers, handle texts, and make custom analyses.

This chapter focuses on the things you need most. It is designed in such a way that you can work through it even if you haven't written computer programs before.
