So if you wanted to run a demo that required programs to be run beforehand, or assigns to be set, then you would go through all that? Not me. In any case, the scripts would come in useful for other...

I forgot to mention it before, but I already tried setting the S attribute on the scripts, but I get the attached result. What is it looking for?
