REB Editor

 [1/16] from: ammoncooke::yahoo::com at: 1-May-2001 16:18


Hi, I am rather new here, just exploring. I was wondering how I could launch the Editor with an icon from the desktop. Thanks! Ammon

Hi (from another newbie) Ctrl-E is best way to launch editor I have found so far. I don't know howto make icon for editor. IMHO that editor is a bit impractical, it's very unpredictable how backspace and delete keys work.. Sometime they delete just a letter, sometimes a word. Makes editing scripts bit too difficult for me. Also cursor keys have bad habit jumping around more or less unpredictable amounts (need to use mouse to place cursor.) All comments with REBOL/View 1.1.0.3.1 with Win2K... (I'll test on Linux sometime soon) Carl: I'm still having that "Guru's guide: Mediation #1 Interrupts".. Was there ever any #2 (I would like to buy if there is) Joanna Kurki

I've mentioned this before as well, but you're the first to confirm it. Seems to happen particularly after a paste operation but I couldn't quite nail it down. -- Graham Chiu

I haven't used it alot, but haven't noticed anything bad in it yet. Ammon

Hmm.. It could be OS/version dependant issue.. I'll install Amiga Emulator and Linux (dualboot) to this machine some day.. While I'm here.. Is there archive of this mailing list somewere on the web? Joanna PS: Something I did. (my first attempt ) Now I only need to make this and index.r reloading happen automatically :-) REBOL [ Title: "Local index refresher" File: %redir.r Author: "Joanna Kurki" Date: 1-May-2001 Purpose: { To automatically regenerate local %index.r file... My first Rebol program, and far from finished } TODO: { Add support for directories (recurse) and set their type right Clean up code.. fix bugs (there are allways bugs) } ] dir: read %. if exists? %index.old [delete %index.old] rename %index.r %index.old write %index.r read %index-orig.r write/append %index.r now write/append %index.r newline foreach file dir [ write/append %index.r reduce rejoin [{file "} :file {" }] write/append %index.r remold file write/append %index.r newline ]

You need to modify the index.r file in your view/local/ directory to look like: rebol [type: 'index] file "Editor" %launch-editor.r info "launch-editor.r - Run rebol/view's built in editor" The launch-editor.r file should contain: rebol [ title: "Launch Editor" ] editor none That's it! Anton.

I use the editor a lot, and have not seen this problem happen. What else can you tell us about your machine? There are a few bugs in the editor related to differences between the scroll bar and cursor keys, but that would not cause the problems that you are seeing. -Carl

I'll send It in E-mail.. It's going to be longer.. (short PC,AmD duron 700, windowse 2k sp1, logitech deluxe kayboard)

I have tested it some.. It looks like for some reason CTRL-key appears to be stuck down. It happens when i write Alt_Gr+7 combination => "{" After getting { it starts to behave and it fixes itself with pressing ctrl-key once .. Joanna

I saw this behaviour, too. It seems that REBOL thinks, you hold the CONTROL-Button down. Cursor jumps to the next/previous word, when pressing left or right and so on. If you hit CONTROL then (and release it, too) the behaviour normal. Hope that helps, Frank

More on REB Editor. Try this (WINDOWS NT here): Open Editor. Press (and hold) CONTROL down. Click into an other (non-REBOL) window. Release CONTROL button. Click into the editor. Try left/right Key. Try backspace. Hit CONTROL. Try now. CU, Frank On Wed, 2 May 2001, Carl Sassenrath wrote:

Confirm.. same problem with Windows 2k .. (allthough this is essentially NT5 :-)

Hi Frank Same problem on Win98 machine. Thanks for figuring out a way to reproduce this. I had noticed the weird behavior several times. -Larry

 [14/16] from: larry:ecotope at: 2-May-2001 10:32


Hi all It gets worse. The problem is not just the with editor: on Win98 all text entry boxes (areas and fields) have the same problem, so it affects the whole user interface. -Larry

Thanks, this is what I was looking for. Ammon

That's useful to know. I've had it deleting words rather than characters. Shutting the editor down and restarting it didn't resolve the problem, so I've normally shut Rebol down instead. Hitting Control seems a lot easier :-) -- Graham Chiu
