Fundamental Forms

Here are the fundamental forms of all Timbre rules for all subsequent Frameworks and scripts augmented with a few illuminating comments:

  1. { } recognition
  2. [ ] control
  3. { }{ } substitution
  4. { }[ ] action
  5. { }[ ]{ } translation
  6. { }[ { } ] controlled substitution
  7. [ ]{ } pattern generator
  8. [ { } ] controlled pattern generator
  9. [ { } ]{ } semi-controlled pattern generator
  10. { }[ { } ]{ } transmorf

Recognition

  • pattern is parsed out of the input
  • it is in the dictionary
  • an empty pattern matches everything else, it is the default rule

Control

  • it runs the machinery when there is no input
  • self sustaining
  • default action is to continue to parse words from open files using blanks as delimiters

Substitution

  • just altering the flow
  • optimizations
  • self sustaining

Action

  • from the event, action, change state model
  • states are supported as well as context nesting

Translation

  • recognition, control and substitution, what more do you need?
  • self sustaining

Controlled Substitution

  • oh yeah, gotta control some of those substitutions
  • self sustaining

Pattern Generator

  • gotta have one, may as well be in concert
  • continuous

Controlled Pattern Generator

  • this is creativity, only appreciated by others
  • self destroying
  • second name: creativity

Semi-Controlled Pattern Generator

  • nice to have some shorthand in the creation
  • self destroying

Transmorf

  • I see, I channel, I add
  • I can do it all, every thing else is just shorthand
