Obtaining a LotusScript object model map

Recently I was asked by another developer where to get a copy of the LotusScript object model map that I have on the wall. The map is one of those large colorful sheets that shows the LotusScript objects in a tree like diagram. The objects are listed with their methods and properties. These maps are great for checking the relationship of different objects or the syntax for a specific method or property. Many of the Lotus Education courses include a copy of the appropriate object map in the course material. Third party education materials and courseware often refer to these diagrams. However, if you don't take the Lotus course, or go to an event where the maps are being given out(Lotusphere, SuperHumanSoftwareTour), you have to try to purchase a copy from your local Lotus sales office -- not an easy proposition. There is an alternative. Lotus has made on line versions of these maps available and combined them with more detailed documentation of the methods and processes for each object. The documentation even tells you if the item is new in R5. One of the great parts of the on-line documentation is that the map of the objects can be printed on one standard sheet of paper for quick reference. The main link is for Domino objects for LotusScript and OLE: Others are specific links for various releases. For R5: For R4.6: For R4.5:
