There are three exemplar projects in this section.

The first two scripts have been divided into three parts. This is for ease of viewing and to minimise scrolling - it does not reflect the organisation of the scripts themselves. The third script is too long to be viewed in this way and will launch as a PDF file. All the other scripts and commentaries are also available in PDF versions.
