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

From: ryanc:iesco-dms at: 10-Jan-2002 13:26

Hey Gregg, Check out my post early last night, Re: [REBOL] Re: quality rebol based editor. Its kind of a hack job, but cool nonetheless. Maybe we can steal some ideas from each other. I am interested to see how you did that Gregg. BTW, late last night I think I figured some tricks on how to do a really fast syntax highlight, though it requires some mean programming. There are a great number of cheats, but I see the biggest speed gain by only handling color within the visible area. Who cares about what you cant see? I would expect that you could remap the color of a whole 80x50 character screen in under 100ms on a 200mhz box. Another cheat that helps alot is to use an incremental remapping process, running in short durations. Color remapping would have a visible propagation with this technique, but you would not notice any UI delays. --Ryan Gregg Irwin wrote:
