code sample, 3rd last line

the line of pseudocode is too long to display and needs to be broken down.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Width of code formatting goes wider than page in PDF. Gets cutoff. Inserted line breaks.

You mention to take a look at a sketch in Chapter 9. This seems to be a long way through the book for a reader of Chapter 2 to reference. I wonder if this is a sentence left from an earlier draft?

Note from the Author or Editor:
Example is actually in the Appendix. Clarified.

You ask the reader to "check out Chapter 9 if you don't remember that discussion". Seems odd, coming in Chapter 2. This may be the product of an earlier version of the book??

Note from the Author or Editor:
Clarified the language. Example is actually in the Appendix.

You have "+and +previousY" (all bold), looks like you should have "and previousY" with just "previousY" in bold.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Typo. Fixed.

The book reads: Hereís the code. It may look long, but itís actually mostly identical to our advanced drawing app. As usual, Iíve written comments on all the new lines. inlcude::code/ex10_basic_minority_report/ex10_basic_minority_report.pde[] But there is no code or link provided to ex10_basic_minority_report.pde

Note from the Author or Editor:
There was a typo in the "include" directive. Fixed and pushed to the repo.

Code example at bottom of page

// only update image position // if image is in moving state if(imageMoving){ image1X = interpolatedX; image2Y = interpolatedY; } //draw the image on the screen image(image1,image1X,image1Y); Should read: image1Y = interpolatedY; not image2Y...

Note from the Author or Editor:
This was a typo in the reproduced section of code. image2Y should have read image1Y.

You have a link to a bit of code, when in fact you were trying to show the code itself (code is missing at this point).

Note from the Author or Editor:
That example is actually in the Appendix. I've clarified.
