There is a one-to-one mapping between an M-tree directory and a MovieScript dictionary. The dictionary tree starts from the MetaDictionary M, which contains keys Op, Lib, and so on, associated with appropriate dictionaries as values. The Op dictionary contains MovieScript operators as values, the Lib dictionary contains the dictionaries of library functions as values, and so on. MetaDictionary mapping provides run-time interpreted access to all resources within the M-tree, and it can be used, for example, for building more advanced MovieScript-based CASE tools for the server development.
