The Manual and show()

Msquare
I started reading the manual, again. Last time was probably around 2016 (?!?)

I needed to understand exactly how the "$" prefix to variables changing their scope. In the manual there is an example, and it makes use of the function show() I can not find any description of it in the manual (using a search of the PDF version of same) or cheatsheet

Some simple experiment shows it forces execution(?) of code sections that otherwise are pruned because they do not add anything to the "CSG-tree". But it also does something else, as there is another "echo" output.

What is show() defined to do? (where is it described)

Msquare
(NB: I used to contribute a little to the manual but that was in 2012... Damn, time flies)

I was very stupid, and do not want it to be remembered.

Don't worry, we've all been there. Sucking at something, then asking questions, is the first step to being great at it.

10+ years, obviously not enough ;-)

Yeah, there was supposed to be a smiley in the 2nd post.

I'll live through it

Michael, fra mobilen

(Thinking of improving the example in the doc)
