Inform 7: An Unofficial Documentation Index

This index is no longer supported. The Writing With Inform manual has been updated, and the links on this page are broken. A current version of this index can be found on the Inform 7 web site, as the General Index of the manual. The General Index is also included in the I7 application under "Documentation".

Writing with Inform — aka "the Inform 7 manual", the one that comes with the compiler — is an exceptionally detailed and valuable book about the language. But for the first several years of its existence, it did not have an index. Users had to rely on the Table of Contents and the IDE's "search" function.

Early on, Sean Barrett put together an Unofficial Documentation Index, with topics linked to the manual web site. I7 has been updated several times since then, so his page is extremely out of date. In 2010, with his permission, I revised and updated the index, at this address. Now this one is out of date too, but I keep it posted for historical reasons.

(If you're interested in how this file was generated, you can download the data files and scripts that I used.)

This index refers to Inform 7 release 6G60. (But it can be used for 6E72 and 6F95, because the manual structure is the same for those releases.) For recent releases (6L02 and later), see the General Index, which is also available in the Documentation tab of the I7 application.

In general, fixed-width text refers to phrases in Inform source code. SMALL CAPS refers to in-game commands (both debugging commands and those used by players).
