there are still a few typos in the functionlist

'cener instead of 'center

CshpCanInstallArmor instead of shpCanInstallArmor

If you make a list of any other typos you spot I'll take a look next time I do an update. Also any functions with wrong or incomplete help text (e.g. map)

The B: criteria is missing from 'sysFindObject' but it may have been deprecated and replaced by +/- attribute. (credit to xephyr)

Also unvFindObject will take '+unid:&WhicheverObject;'.

And in typFind, the criteria
e SpaceEnvironmenType
needs a 't' in Environment

switch has a typo in 'default'

But most importantly, thank you so much gc and the others for doing this. It was very disheartening to look up a function and find only (theFunction ...). This is much better.

Also I'm not sure how this works but all the scr functions don't appear in AP's post but do in digdug's differences post. Should they be in the top one as well?

Lastly, apparently (coz I'm not sure what I'm talking about) using the XML functions requires 'usesXML="true"' in a mod (ty NMS). Would it be worth mentioning that somehow in the list.

 They likely have the same problem that I did with the ply* functions. I ran this from TransData instead of Transcendence. Since there are no players and no dockscreens for TransData, evidently they were excluded from it. I need to get the utility updated before I run the 1.7RC function list, though; the list of functions and their fncHelp outputs has gotten too large for the game to handle the way the utility currently runs. I would already have it done except that the update happened while I was out of town for a convention. …Nice timing, there, George… *Grumblemutter.* ^.~

Good news! The problem with your script is caused by the help text for (plyComposeString). Apparently % is an escape character and one of the letters after it causes (printTo) to break. Replace it with (dbgLog) and it mostly works. The % signs are removed and a couple characters are wrong, which I fixed manually. While I was investigating, I cleaned up the script, but it should be equivalent otherwise.

Edit: Here's a new version that actually works, regardless of whether you're running in debug mode. I fixed the % signs by substituting %%. Since we have a new game version (although there may not be any changes since Beta 6), results are now here: Function List — 1.7 (API 35)

 Destickying this thread, stickying the new one, and updating the utility on Xelerus. Digdug, go do that thing you do on the new list; you should probably do it based off the API 34 version for 1.7b5 instead of from this list, seeing as this one turned out to be rather badly incomplete in a few areas. Thanks, NMS. ^.^

You're welcome. And I'd been meaning to write a function that substitutes for arbitrary text in a string anyway.

You may find there are more changed functions than expected. It turns out a bunch of functions have had % symbols in their help text all along, but they were being stripped in the output process.
