How to use the documentation

The documentation for ooc is structured as follows:

  1. The Tutorial is a ten minute journey meant for newcomers to the language. By building a small program, you will learn the basics of the syntax and even use bits of the SDK.

  2. The Language section explains in detail every feature of the language: it goes through the syntax and a the main use cases for every feature. It also contains a full grammar, and a collection of best practices.

  3. The SDK section gives an overview of the modules included with the default ooc distribution. Whether you need access to files, to measure time, to do some networking, or simply use common data structures, the SDK is packed with goodness.

  4. The Tools section lists useful tools for ooc development, along with a typical workflow from the creation, compilation, testing, and documentation of a project.

  5. The Troubleshooting section gives advice on how to address frequently encountered problems.

  6. The Glossary is a collection of terms you may stumble upon while using ooc or reading its documentation. If you don’t understand a term, go here!
