    Rhino 5 has the same monkey editor. But it is the right choise if you want to write quick, simple functions!

    Johannes -

    thanks for the quick answer. I guess I'll wait until I have access to Rhino 5 though as I don't want to move back to VS 2005.

    I do want to learn enough Rhinoscript, though, to write quick, simple functions.

    Hi Peter, you are right. The only advantage of the code monkey is that it is integrated in rhino. It is a simple script editor with no control of local variables. You can use print, prompt, msgbox, textdot,.... for debugging. Two advantages makes the monkey more useful than the windows text editor: syntax highlighting and a 'run script' button.

    If you want to have more control use VisualStudio and write a plugin for rhino using c# or

    Hello -

    I'm just starting with Rhinoscript (and Rhino for that matter!). I'm used to working with lisp + vb/vba + c# and am able to inspect local variables in the various IDEs for these languages. I haven't discovered this in Rhinoscript (or in the Code Monkey IDE) - just the Rhino.Print method.

    Am I missing something obvious?
