EDF Tutorials

Oh, because I also wanted to know if EDF is also used for map scripting, unless EE has something else for that.

For map scripting, EE currently has Small (which is now considered deprecated, due to some major portability issues [i.e. supporting 64-bit and whatnot] that weren't known about when it was added) and at least a partial implementation of Hexen's ACS. I'm not sure exactly how complete its ACS support is at the moment; I generally just rely on voodoo doll scripting, for the time being at least.

As for the future, there's also a new language/API being worked on called "Aeon", based on ECMAScript (aka JavaScript), which is planned to eventually be expanded to allow for a "scripts anywhere" approach: map scripts, scripts directly inside UDMF fields, scripts in EDF to create custom codepointers, etc.
