Reusable script snippet

Templates are a specific type of covert labels that receive entry arguments. A variable is created for each argument and exists until a new label statement is played.

This can reduce repetitive lines and play specific sections of a story that need entry parameters.

  • Since templates are also covert labels, they can be declared using either @ or <@>

  • After naming the label, enumerate a list of arguments between parentheses, and separate by commas

  • Template argument variables start with @

  • On the router statement, pass the values for each argument in the same order.

Template as Instruction

A label instruction can also be a template. In this case, the statement only plays if directly called by a router, since it becomes a covert statement.

Template variables are created for this statement play and deleted on the following statement play.
