About the Author

This tutorial was written by Samuel Reynolds (that's me!).

I am a software engineer in the Denver metro area, and live in nearby Parker, CO. I'm largely self-taught in software engineering, coming from a background in general and electronic engineering.

I have used Frontier since the free Aretha (4.0) release on the Mac and (since 5.0.1) on Windows. I use it for task automation, website maintenance, and as an brainstorming tool (the outliner's great for that!). I was also privileged to serve as a UserLand support associate for over 2 years, providing technical support to registered Frontier users through UserLand's Frontier-Users mailing list (password protected for registered Frontier users only).

For other published Frontier materials, please visit my Frontier Scripting website.

I hope this tutorial has been helpful. Please send comments to Samuel Reynolds.
