Description

The Crate XCMD (its really called The Message Crate - like the Message Box only bigger) gives you an easy way to test out scripts.

You can enter multi-line scripts in to it. To execute a script, simply place the cursor anywhere within the script, and press the Enter key.

The crate will try to execute the whole block of lines surrounding the cursor, so you can try out scripts with if then else clauses, repeat loops, or whatever, which you can't do in the normal message box.

Example script

on mouseUp
  crate
end mouseUp
