<Dated>:

Thanks to whoever chided as follows (it caused me to reThink my statements.) I will try to rework the original text later. -- Hwo040613

Recursive inclusion means a page includes itself? That surely wouldn't be useful. I understand that idea, but would call it "nesting" rather than recursion. It's unclear whether it's really useful to provide similar functionality in the template.

Notes for the next version (with Thanks for the podding!): original text...

I agree that, in general, Recursive inclusion is a very bad thing (infinite loop, memory 'pacMan', ... system crash!). EddiesWiki, however, terminates the 'repeated' include when a page calls itself. This makes it possible to have a Table of Includes, the cells of which contain hyperlinks to other pages that themselves include ... etc. The result of this is a series of nested Tables that allow you to edit a deeply Included page once, and have that change appear to ripple up through all of the levels. I suspect that this is hard to understand without an illustration so I will try to cobble something together, but unfortunately won't be able to do so much before the weekend of the 20th. So far, in designing a mock up of a PIM for an associate, the design limitation of the logical table structures, the screen space, and the way Eddies' tables are implemented has kept me from getting into trouble with this relatively unorthodox, but really beneficial (if you hate typing) approach. -- hwo



Dated (Block 2)...

Useful hints for beginners I learned here: Pages that I have found useful during my initial explorations include: PeopleIndex, TextFormattingRules, FindPage, ...

Conventions here are a little different than I am used to on the basis of using a version of Php-Wiki, so I am still experimenting... PeopleIndex, FreeLink: [http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?PeopleIndex], ...

(I have gotten into the habit of making initial notes like this one when I am learning, since I frequently find appreciative audiences and find it very much easier to give these notes to people later, when I have mastered a subject and can no longer easily remember the frustrations faced by a novice.)
