is important to store related files
in the same folder so that BP2 finds them immediately. Reserve a special folder
to BP2 software, on-line documentation and start-up/shutdown files, as shown
offers an elegant solution for arranging projects: use
instead of moving or duplicating files. You may reserve another folder for the
alphabets, sound-object prototype files, glossaries, etc., as shown Fig.9.

names are just indicative and should in general be more explicit. Names in
Here, for instance, an alias "-
is required in the same folder as "-gr.grammar1" because the name of this
alphabet file appears on top of the grammar file. Similarly, other aliases
have been placed near the files calling them. An alias of "-se.startup" is
needed in the "Settings" folder so that scripts will execute the "New project"
that aliases for BP2 must bear exactly the names by which the files are called
when BP2 reads headers. Here we used the same names for aliases and original
files, the only way to distinguish them being the italic.
is advisable to create a separate folder for saving your current work, given
that whenever you create new basic elements you will continue storing them in
the folders shown Fig.9. A typical example of work folder is shown Fig.10.

Project 1 deals with a grammar (and associated alphabet, etc., files that are
automatically loaded), while Project 2 uses only a data file (and associated
files). Data files "-da.data1" and "-da.data2" call alphabet, settings,
glossary and interactive file, aliases of which have been placed into the
aliases in the "Scripts" folder are shown between brackets because they are
only needed if a script calls them directly. Besides, scripts are capable of
recording directory and volume changes (see §8).

because aliases loose track of their original files if both are moved to a
