I have linked this from the list of pedit scripts:
EncyCMUCLopedia * Extensive collection of CMU Common Lisp documentation
- This follows the principle of "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish and you get rid of him for the weekend."
Including explanations with the scripts will tempt more of us into spending
our weekends writing scripts for pedit!

Subject: expanding pedit's potential
But 1 out of 5 peditors might consider writing a script in magiPad (sooner
later), especially if they see examples of other scripts. Especially if the
example scripts are accompanied by a brief explanation.
"All Accounting is creative."
- Hi Jerry, this scrip works great, thanks. But you need to put a "/" after
the esc character in 0x03 and 0x04 or it does very strange things. Somehow
it would bring up the "Recent" dialog. I'm still trying to figure out how it
did that. But it doesn't do anything destructive that I can find. Just makes
the screen flash through a lot of unexpected dialogs.
Having fun in pedit script land.....
