One of the most useful resources for Frontier scripters is Matt Neuburg's book »Frontier: The Definitve Guide«. It's out of print but fortunately it has been made available on the web:
Although the book was originally published in 1998 and covers Frontier 4.2.3, it is still a valuable source for learning about Frontier scripting.
Currently, the best way to get support is to post your questions to the frontierkernel mailing list.
