01:49 Idiosyncrat do_S() is an example action, for illustrating the context variables.
01:49 Idiosyncrat I'm not sure if this actually answers your question.
02:16 Idiosyncrat Is the question "could this be dropped in place for any action, and do something sensible?" ?
02:16 Idiosyncrat The answer to that would be "I don
02:17 Idiosyncrat 't know".  That wasn't the intention, but maybe.
02:24 Idiosyncrat OK.  As to "could do_S() be dropped in anywhere ...?", the answer is definitely "No"
02:24 Idiosyncrat do_S assumes it is the action for the top level symbol.
02:29 ronsavage JK: Thanx. I copied the code which generates this - $action_object->{text} - and put it into a string in one of my actions, and printed it. And it worked.
02:30 ronsavage I've submitted an issue to edit the thing slightly, to make it clearer that the sub is a common-or-garden rule's action sub.

22:12 Idiosyncrat Work on the theory paper continues!
22:12 Idiosyncrat A lot of effort, but I hope it will be worthwhile.
22:12 Idiosyncrat When done, unlike the current theory paper, it will be "self-contained".
22:13 Idiosyncrat That is, the current theory paper assumes you're familar with or will look up, all sorts of things in the literature.
22:14 Idiosyncrat The new theory paper will assume basic knowledge of parsing theory, knowledge of proof techniques like induction & reductio ad absurdam, etc.
22:14 Idiosyncrat But nothing else.
22:14 Idiosyncrat So someone who's read a few Wikipedia articles can start on page 1 and expect to be able to read through.
