[REBOL] Re: editor

From: gerardcote:sympatico:ca at: 30-Jun-2002 10:56

Hi Jim, You did an excellent job of dismantling all this code. In a recent reply I explained how I found the Editor code which I suspected to be refered in the REBOL system help. Let's switch to another topic now : ======================= After trying your a-a-edit.r script I found myself a bit disoriented on how to use it and I didn't want to use much time learning by doing on a trial and error basis. do you have some basic doc about the way to use it or at least a small description about how it works and what is the goal of it. And again in a last direction :

Did you hear about the REEMACS or (REM) editor Cal Dixon seemed to submit to the REBOL community near the end of september 2000. I found an archived article in the ML yesterday he wrot about it and I tried to contact him by his old email addresses - but I don't have received an answer from him yet. Hope he always use his old adresses and is interested sharing some ideas and code with us all - if any other is interested by his work. His editor was completely REBOL based and worked only in CONSOLE mode but it seemed to work well also under VIEW (presumably in console mode too). I don't know if this can be of some use to you but at least you know that there was a REBOL EDITOR that existed once. Regards, Gerard
