Dear Log,

One forgets how very very good the online Perl documentation is.

I recently decided to while away an hour or two by trying to learn the basics of the WordPerfect 8 macro language. Partly this is just nostalgia -- once upon a time I knew the WP5.1 macro language quite well -- and partly it was that I was so fed up with the lack of a working command in MSWord for "copy this as HTML" that I decided to try cobbling something of the sort together for my WP8.

So I tried reading the docs for WP8's macro language. I would kill for something like perlfunc for it. There's a short reference to the commands, but nothing like the start of perlfunc, the "Perl Functions by Category" part.

Here's my contribution to macrodom:

Application (WordPerfect; "WordPerfect"; Default!; "EN")
// Open a window for the directory containing the current file.
AppExecute (CommandLine: "explorer.exe " + ?Path)

Once I get my copy-as-HTML macro producing better code, I'll post it.
