Does perl/Sawtooth script documentation exist for previous versions of Sawtooth SSI Web

I'm currently setting up a couple of CBC surveys in Sawtooth SSI Web version 6.6 and have found that many of the functions listed in the current documentation does not work in the software.

For instance, the function GetValue(questionname) (or GETVALUE("questionname") for perl) does not work, but the function VALUE("questionname")) does the job. Is there anywhere I can look up documentation specific to version 6.6 of the software?

We're probably all a bit rusty on version 6 here (it was originally released back in 2006!) and indeed there have been a lot of new scripts added over that time.

You should be able to find everything in the local documentation (Help menu or hit F1) following a similar path in the tree navigation, like General Survey Help -> Composing Surveys -> SSI Script.  There then should be a link on that page for Functions, which groups all the functions into categories (List Functions, System Functions, Quota Functions, etc.).
