+ hello human
- Hello Bot

+ matches all input types

? matches only question input

- Is the reply sent back to the user.

+ [hey] hello (nice|mean) human
- Hello Bot

[] are for optional words, they may or may not appear in the input match

() are alternate words. One MUST appear.

+ * should *~2 work *1
- I have no idea.

* Matches ZERO or more words or tokens

*~n Matches ZERO to N words or tokens

*n Matches exactly N number of words or tokens

The above is just a tiny fraction of what the system is capable of doing. Please see the full documentation to learn more.

SuperScript is based off of a fork of RiveScript with idiom brought in from ChatScript. Without the work of Noah Petherbridge and Bruce Wilcox, this project would not be possible.
