Dear everybody,
I just wanted to ask, if here is really the right place to ask questions no matter how easy they seem to be understandable for advanced users. May be there is a better place for asking beginners-questions?
Thanks in advance, best regards, Thomas

Hello and thanks at first.

My #1st issue/idea: book and docu:

ReGina: 1.3.1. Using groovysh for a welcome message:
"The shell can be started with a number of different command-line options that
are well explained in the online documentation (www.groovylang.
org/groovysh.html). The shell also understands useful commands, most
notably help, which spares us listing all commands here."

help ==> Unknown property: help
:help ==> help files

If you don't know it, you type "help" instead of ":help".

Also here:
1.4.1. Recognized Commands
"help" ==> the same. First time when you look down on the screen output on the commands you get the insight: "I have to type a colon first".

This is only my personally reception in reading the book and the documentation.
