we have codability!

Tidepool is now officially a programming system.  Today’s version lets you teach your agents new words and have them execute their steps.  For example, when I type this:

#seymour.3 when mosey, begin forward 1000, turn 90, sound ow, end

the agent “seymour.3″ learns that the word “mosey” means it should move forward 100, turn at a right angle, and make a sound.  To do it, type:

#seymour.3 mosey

See it yourself in our latest screencast:

Hear me debate the particulars in yesterday’s and today’s podcasts.
