12 Versor and research

Versor was developed as part of some research on the psychology of programming (see Versor and research), to see how much people editing programs will use the facility to work at a higher level of abstraction than the character-by-character, line-by-line level, and how much, and when, they resort to traditional commands despite more powerful ones being available.

Versor will be used in controlled experimental conditions for this, but to gather wider information, the author encourages you to use Versor's use analysis features (see Analysis) and send in the results (in the form of the file, normally ~/.versor-log but redefinable by setting versor-research-log-file), once you have been using Versor for a while.
