Dave, there's a configuration menu in Notepad++ where you can define your own language. You may have to write a script for it as well. I never delved that deep into it, but I know you can set it up for your own definitions.

I just now d/l'd it and tried it out. Pretty nice for a GUI editor. It correctly identified my source code as assembly language but it highlights certain reserved words like INC, DEC, AND, IF, WAIT, FOR, etc.  which makes my code look a little strange..DaveOn 2/20/2018 12:26 AM, Bill Pierce via Coco wrote:> The best editor I've seen yet for the PC is "Notepad++" and you can configure it for almost any programming language.

It would need a virtual memory buffer and dynamically loaded subroutines... hmmm... sounds familiar...>>   >>   >> Bill Pierce> "Charlie stole the handle, and the train it won't stop going, no way to slow down!" - Ian Anderson - Jethro Tull>> My Music from the Tandy/Radio Shack Color Computer 2 & 3> https://sites.google.com/site/dabarnstudio/> Co-Contributor, Co-Editor for CocoPedia> http://www.cocopedia.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page>> E-Mail: ooogalapasooo at aol.com>>   >>   >> -----Original Message-----> From: Mark McDougall <msmcdoug at iinet.net.au>> To: coco <coco at maltedmedia.com>> Sent: Tue, Feb 20, 2018 1:13 am> Subject: Re: [Coco] VI Editor>> On 20/02/2018 5:00 PM, Dave Philipsen wrote:> For me as a programmer > the most important functions are search, search and replace, block move, > block copy, block delete, delete line, and perhaps a little less > importantly, a split-screen mode where you can have two files open and > bounce back and forth and even copy data from one file to the other.Plenty of editors under windows and linux that would fit the bill without having to resort to DOS.Regards,-- Mark McDougall<http://retroports.blogspot.com.au>-- Coco mailing listCoco at maltedmedia.comhttps://pairlist5.pair.net/mailman/listinfo/coco>-- Coco mailing listCoco at maltedmedia.comhttps://pairlist5.pair.net/mailman/listinfo/coco
