Self, AIML, and scripting : Order of execution of scripts

RE: Order of execution of scripts

You are correct, there is one root state in a Self script, and states and functions must be self contained in a script file, they cannot call other states or functions in other scripts.

If you really need to redirect to another script file, you can use a redirect() or srai() operation to redirect to another question that the script answers.

For example:

state whats {
  pattern "whats *" answer whatIs();
  function whatIs() {
    if (star == "your name") {
      return redirect("what is your name");
    }
    return WikiData.search(star);
  }
}
