Joel: could it be that you're using Vim? If so, I have a rebol.vim that I've worked up to current. If not: Please! Please! Don't be offended. :>)

Actually, the variable names I used earlier in the thread were VI (for Variable Integer), VS (for Variable String), and VB (for Variable Block). I just re-used the VI name out of context. That said, actually I do use vim. (I just got 6.0 on my laptop.) I decided years ago that a single multi-platform editor was A Good Idea. That pretty much narrowed the choices down to vi and emacs, and vi was more readily available on more of the platforms I use(d). Once I found vim, there was no looking back! If you've got an up-to-date REBOL syntax file, I'd love to swipe a copy! As for my being offended, I'm just glad you decided to look for hidden meanings in the name VI instead of the name VB! The possibities in that one are truly horrifying! -jn- -- ; Joel Neely [joel--neely--fedex--com] 901-263-4460 38017/HKA/9677 REBOL [] foreach [order string] sort/skip reduce [ true "!" false head reverse "rekcah" none "REBOL " prin "Just " "another " ] 2 [prin string] print ""

It's an acquired taste, but I sure like it! I do think I will need to pick up Xemacs also to adapt to some multi-language issues with perl programmer buddy....

www.johnsons-web.com/rebol.vim ; I have kind of hacked it.... I've also hacked syntax.vim to get rid of the rex switch. Syntax.vim needed to be modified anyway to accomodate cgi.... (it checked for "REBOL" on the first line)

Yikes! I won't touch that one!

Really ? Could you send it to me, please, please... :) I just upgraded to 6.0 and thought about making some changes to the syntax file myself, but have not had time yet. The latest official version still does not support pairs, has hard-coded definitions for URLs, does not handle escaped characters correctly and more. Not to mention all the missing keywords. Lots of bugs to fix. I am glad someone is still working on that. Do you have an indentation file as well ?

About vim ? Never. Now if you had mentioned evil *m*cs that would have been a different matter :). Now I just wonder how long it takes for Jeff, Sterling or other *m*cs fans to take that flame bait... :) -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]

This is ver 5.7. Like you I don't want to mess with a beta. But I think that Bram will do an excellent job as always....

I do not, but I have hacked some of Dr. Chips C Macros both for my own C code and for rebol http://users.erols.com/astronaut/ highly recommended.

Ha! Editor Wars make me laugh. But while we are on the subject.. The best Windoze Editor I have come accross is Boxer. www.boxersoftware.com If you believe in supporting small agile companies (and that's one reason that rebol appeals to me), this is a wonderfully configurable product for Windows alone. And I've rebol syntax pretty much working for that too....

Thanks!! You're awesome. Ammon

Well, on www.crimsoneditor.com is Crimson Editor i use (for windows). Quite good and freeware. (bookmarks, "live" brackets matching etc.) Rebol syntax - http://www.terminal.sky.pl/rebol/crimsonreb.zip Alekk

 [13/17] from: ammoncooke:yah:oo at: 4-Oct-2001 18:42


It is cute, but in fact there doesn't seem to be a way to get true Syntax highlighting, there is a little bit of highlightning in the delimiters, strings, & numbers, but no Keywords!! I would give that up! try CREdit, www.thecredit.com the REBOL syntax file is available on their website. Enjoy!! Ammon

 [14/17] from: ammoncooke:yah:oo at: 4-Oct-2001 19:07


Sorry, wrong URL, http://www.thecredit.f2s.com/ Enjoy!!! Ammon

 [15/17] from: alekk:obywatel:pl at: 5-Oct-2001 2:21


Well, I tried CREdit, and on Your request installed it again ;) BUT! IMO Crimson Editor is MUCH better to handle rebol. WHY? 1) keywords with "-" and "?" - they are accepted by Crimson, but i don't see any chance to get it in CREdit 2) Strings delimiters - I can't see option to get {} as it. I opened the same file in two editors, and my next step is to... uninstall CREdit :) If I'm wrong - please let me know (but first - install Crimson and syntax files for Rebol) regards Alekk

 [16/17] from: ammoncooke:yah:oo at: 4-Oct-2001 20:16


I stand corrected concerning CREdit, now please tell me that you can correct me on Crimson. ;) I followed all of the instruction you gave in the readme.txt, but for some silly reason the keywords weren't highlighted. I am using Command not Link if that makes any difference. Thanks!! Ammon

 [17/17] from: matt:fitzgerald:bigpond at: 5-Oct-2001 16:03


I use UltraEdit, there's a REBOL syntax file on http://www.idmcomp.com too.
