-The **<<​button>>​** [[macro]] creates a button, a special type of [[link]] that, when clicked, sets the data entered into other form macros in the passage ([[<<​textinput>>​]],​ [[<<​radio>>​]],​ [[<<​checkbox>>​]]),​ and moves to another passage. 
-The <<​button>>​ macro should be provided with the familiar link syntax: 
->​%%<<​%%button %%[[%%//​displayed text//​|//​passage name//​%%]]>>​%% 
-The resulting button behaves identically to a normal link, but, when clicked, additionally causes the data entered into [[<<​textinput>>​]],​ [[<<​radio>>​]] and [[<<​checkbox>>​]] macros to be placed in the [[variable]]s. 
-For instance, if the macro ''<<​textinput $FoodName>>''​ appears in the same passage with a <<​button>>,​ and the  text "​pretzels"​ has been entered into the input box, then clicking the button will, in addition to changing passages, run the equivalent of ''<<​set $FoodName to "​pretzels">>''​.
