In X12 I've noticed that when using Structural Member Reporting in a material list, the price column in the list does not appear to be sensitive to whether a "per unit" or "per length" calculation is being performed by the material list. In both cases, the material list appears to use the same Price variable in the Component Panel of each object. Does anyone know of some Ruby scripting that could be used to correct this? Off hand, I'm thinking of a macro inserted into the Price variable on the Component Panel of each structural member that would use the Material List row context to report a price that depends on how the row wants to use the Price.
Just throwing the question out here: Is it possible to write a custom script for X10 to make the program export a custom materials list with some calculated fields and some custom formatting, like a header with our logo?
If so, would anyone have an idea where I could turn to have this done for me?

Code demonstrate use of Ruby arrays, and "any?" method.
I also have A200,400, and pella.. But this will get you started if you are not 100% familiar with Ruby.
Revit, Rhino, Vectorworks and Allplan all have Python support. Form-Zis working on Python. Sketchup does ruby.
Although i do think that Python may integrate better, I still think Ruby is a easier language to learn for the novice. And ruby 3 will have some advanced features.
Wonder where Chief is and what is their position is now? -- With a few improvements and a keyboard interface using Chief's hotkeys, I think Chief's Ruby API could quickly rival the above in versatility? Are Chiefer's going to be left behind? What do you think? Open up Data Access in CA.
