"Setting and Showing Variables": SugarCube (v2.18)


Variables, symbols starting with $ (for normal) or _ (for temporary), can be "set" using the <<set>> macro in SugarCube.

$ is used for storing data throughout the story, and _ should be used for data only needed in the current passage. Using _ is useful for not wanting to accidentally overwrite variables elsewhere in the story. They can also help with debugging through not cluttering up the variables list of future passages.
