[REBOL] Re: quality rebol based editor (Was: Re: Style R flavour checker ;-))

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 10-Jan-2002 12:45

Hi Cyphre, << But the problem is not only in color, also parsing the text for additional features such folding , syntax correction, tap completition and lots of other cool features I'm used from other editors is very time consuming tasks for rebol's parser.(especially when you are working with more than 3Kb text file) >> I haven't tried it on scripts of any size, but a while back I got the basics of "REBOLsense" working. I.e. when you type a /, it checks to see if the preceding word is an object and, if so, pops up a list filled with the words for that object (works on nested objects as well). If you type a space, it checks to see if the previous word is a function and, if so, it displays the interface definition for the function. --Gregg
