I’m disappointed with sits due diligence

How do I OPEN the downloaded Missing Manual example files?

I went to the website and downloaded the cd example files. Files don't have any obvious way to start them (a START BUTTON would be nice). How do I move though these lessons?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for writing us about this, and I'm sorry for the confusion. Which book's files are you looking at?

    Usually, the example files will be referenced in the book's text, so you can look at and work through the files along with the book. The files by themselves usually won't have much meaning, but they will make sense when following along with the book.

    Hope that helps! Let us know what book you're working on, and we can give you more info.

    Kind Regards,

  • thank you for the reply. I did eventually find the referenced files when I decided to start without them. The confusion began when I was reading the Introduction (page16) of JavaScript & JQuery Missing Manual. That introduction tells me about the examples and tells me where to find them to download; but, doesn't tell me how to open them. Sooooo, here I sat with downloaded files, ready for chapter 1 and NO examples...you get the idea.

    I did eventually find out how to open them on the first tutorial page material. My mind was not thinking like that yet, I was thinking that there would be a more complete description in the Introduction section so I could start chapter 1 and know that the first tutorial would provide the open file information.

    Thought you'd like to know for the next publication/update of manual.

    Thanks again,
    JR
