We've finished two Web Tutorials which I think you may be interested
in. I'm posting these to the list for the moment in the hopes that
people might respond with comments (please post comments to the list).
The tutorials are in:
Adding charting facilities to MASON
One approach to loading parameters from files into MASON
These tutorials, and the libraries they rely on, will not be part of
the MASON package: we'd like to keep MASON small. They'll be part of
examples of how to extend MASON and will be available off the main
MASON webpage when we update to version 6 (very soon). We'll also be
adding a "Tutorial 0" (how to run MASON) and a project one of my
students is working on to create a lightweight 2D physics model to
MASON and *also* to hook on the heavyweight ODE physics system to
MASON. If anyone's interested in contributing to these last two items,
please let me know.
