Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The name Lingo has been used by several unrelated programming languages. Its most common version is a scripting language developed by John H. Thompson for use in Adobe Director, used for regular desktop applications, interactive kiosks, CD-ROMs and Adobe Shockwave internet sites. HyperTalk is likely to have been one of the inspirations for Lingo. A very powerful part of the language is Imaging Lingo. It was introduced when Director version 8.0 arrived. It gives the user the power of image manipulation with simple commands. There are some similarities to functions of image applications, that make it easy to create dynamic, code-based visual effects. Since then imaging has also been added to Adobe Flash's ActionScript language with the Flash BitmapData object. As this included more sophisticated commands, Director was also updated to allow conversion between the BitmapData object and its own Image objects.
