Important Announcement Regarding My FrameScript Book

My 2003 book "FrameScript: A Crash Course" is out of print and won't be re-released. For a limited time, I am making a PDF of the book available for purchase. The book was written for FrameScript 2, but the topics are still relevant to the current version of FrameScript. The cost is $25 US.

There are two ways to order the book:

  • Via fax to 585-219-8959. This is a direct fax to my private office, so a cover sheet is not necessary. Please include your name, address, email address, and credit card information. I need the credit card type, number, expiration date, and security code. NOTE THAT ALL CREDIT CARD INFORMATION WILL BE DESTROYED AS SOON AS THE TRANSACTION IS COMPLETE.
  • Via PayPal by paying $25 to frameexpert@truevine.net.

The book will be sent to you via email. The PDF is about 2 MB, so make sure you can receive email attachments this size.

As a bonus, I will send you a previously unreleased chapter on using regular expressions with FrameScript.
