Beginning script writing help?

I have an A550 and would like to learn script writing. Is there a guide for beginners available or at least a list of commands that can be used?

Thanks.

See CHDK wikia: uBasic, uBasic Syntax and also uBasic TutorialScratchpad.

You might find it useful to try out your scripts on a PC (or Mac) with my interactive debugger - see http://www.zenonic.demon.co.uk/kapstuff/zubdb.html

Thanks for the links, fe50 and THANKS for the debugging program, zeno. You both gave me a big head start on learning this stuff.

The interactive debugger, how often is it updated to reflect changes in chdk ubasic? Does it HAVE to be updated?

It does have to be updated (inside there's a modified version of the interpreter that's in CHDK). I try to keep it up to date - I'm not aware of anything currently missing.

Actually, I just checked and there is a recent fix that's not in the debugger - the "wheel_right" statment won't work
