As for ZAPforum tutorial and snippets it is better to follow
as I am not authorized to edit zapsite pages and there were some changes 
I added some comments to explain the modifications of the datapage commands.

You are right the docs is lacking - a lot of ZAP features  in the  
snippets  I made to work
after consulting Caveman "how to do ..." or "why it does not work?"
He allways promptly and willingly responded and sugested a solution
but this is not a way I would be happyto go. Caveman needs his time to spend
more efficiently than to respond questions which could be read in manuals.

But to put down a good teaching instrument ... hard job.
Yesterday I started to study regular expressions (until now I have never 
needed it) and
found http://www.regular-expressions.info/quickstart.html
If I could be able to write such a good manual!

Best regards,
