Do you know the magic word "notepad"? -- Namari=EB ethanak

Hello? Notepad IS a text editor. I'm looking for a REBOL type of Microsoft Word. Daniel S.

Hi Daniel I don't really understand what you mean by "REBOL type of Microsoft Word." What do you want it to do? Please try to explain again .. Do you mean you want a sophisticated word processor like MSWord, with stylesheets, WYSIWYG font control, graphics embedding etc. But you want one which is written in REBOL? Something you can control, study and also extend in REBOL yourself? If so, I then I believe it surely does not exist... But perhapsyou do not want ALL of that functionality or conmplexity. Robert Muench has been developing an excellent tool called make-doc-pro.r http://www.robertmuench.de/ It's a great tool to study, and experiment with. Very useful too! best wishes ./Jason

Hi Daniel, << Hello? Notepad IS a text editor. I'm looking for a REBOL type of Microsoft Word. >> What you're probably after is a programmer's editor for REBOL, like CodeWright, VIM, SlickEdit, etc. A word processor generally makes for a very bad programmer's editor. Many of the programmer's editors out there already have at least one REBOLer using them who has cooked up a syntax file for them (to do syntax highlighting and such). The trouble with recommending editors is that they are a very subjective area. There are a number of free ones out there (e.g. ConText for Windows) that you might download to get a feel for the possibilities. --Gregg

I like EditPlus. It doesn't take a lots of ressources, you can find a color parser for rebol and you got a lots of functions within. Powerful!

Sorry, I guess I should've explained more... You know how MSWord has different font sizes and Bold/Italic/Underline? All I'm looking for is a text editor/word processer written in REBOL that does that. Daniel S.

And with this version of View is not possible. If you're thinking about writing one, please forget it. You run in numerous problems with allign fonts, 'size-text giving strange results, you cannot find where's font's baseline etc etc etc... REBOL/View will need some native support for rich text (and unicode) to do that kind of thing. Me and Cyphre spend lots of nights on this and each one made cca 3 totally different versions of some different color/size/style text-editors, but every was far from perfect. If you forget different size of fonts you can do that with some problems. Bye, Bolek(re)

Alright, forget the font sizes - how about an example for the other stuff? Daniel S.

Hi Bolek, How did the demo contest every turn out? I didn't see any results posted anywwhere. --Gregg
[12/18] from: rebolek:seznam:cz at: 15-May-2002 7:59
I've never published my results but Cyphre's colour-text can be found in color version of RIM. b

Well, REBOL/Demo... I've been expecting that question... :) When I started RDC I thought I receive some demos or no demos at all. In the first case I'll publish them on dedicated REB, in the second case I'll make a hoax REB with my demos. But...I received one demo. So I was doubtful about RDC. Is the autor of the demo winner when there is no competition? Or should I release my demos as hoax to make some competition? How to solve this? And I made...nothing (well not the best solution at all - I know and sorry about that) So, Gregg, I'm glad to say that the winning demo is FIREWORKS and YOU - as the author - ARE THE WINNER! And no, ther is no second prize, so the winner takes it all ;) Cheers, Bolek(re)

Hey Bolek, Well, that's both sad and funny. I'm sorry more people didn't send in at least a little something. Thanks for trying anyway. I will gladly donate my winnings back to be used for the next round. :) --Gregg
[15/18] from: rebolek:seznam:cz at: 17-May-2002 8:44
Hi Greg, I really appreciate that, but who knows, maybe you win next year too ;) At least, you're the HISTORICALLY FIRST WINNER OF RDC ;) bye, bolek

Re: Text Editors? I found this one
I didn't try yet it seems very promising: http://www.fixedsys.com/context/

Hmm, good question...I don't know... Maybe next year? Or this autnum? Do you have some demos to contribute? If yes it can be sooner than next year ;-) Well, it depends just on me,so... ;-) bye, bb
