Hi Volodya,

Every time I go to look at addressing BB4, I get confused.

Needd to implement new version of the "flags" rule.
Generators ids

Where can I read about "generator IDs"?

will be used to denote generator, to which flags apply.

What does it mean that flags will apply to a generator? Is the idea
simply to limit the "on target" variable assignments to the products
of that generator?

Before calling user-supplied rule,

What user-supplied rule? The one which implements the generator's

generator will set target variables accordingly.

Also, I don't know how to reach this link mentioned in BB4 anymore:


Thanks for any help,

David Abrahams
