Here's an updated version of the Calltips patch for
NEdit 5.2. A couple of bugs have been squashed and
some new conveniences added. Many of the dialogs
have been improved.

    I just fixed a bug in complete_word_calltips.nm that prevented
    words with certain regex characters from being completed. I'm
    just going to send the file instead of making a new version of the
    patch. (It's also $calltip_ID aware now.)

    just tried the new patch. the escape key seems to work quite
    well, I guess that'll do it.

    I traced the program on item #4 a bit. somehow focusOutAP()
    &amp; focusInAP() were called again when I clicked on the text
    area, even thought the text area already has the focus. hmmm...

    one more request, is it possible to let user drag the yellow
    box around? sometime it really stand in the way when it has
    a little to much to show :-(

    about the # of lines (of the tag def), I guess there's no
    simple way to make it smarter, is it? Personally, I would
    want to see only the tag def. and not the extra lines.

    also, I tried to add show_tip() to the BG menu, which
    managed to bring up the yellow box. but when I click on the
    text area after that, the box went away. I am guessing it's
    the same as item #4, but just a guess.

    another thing that came off my mind. might be useful if I
    can right-click in the yellow box to kill. I use the mouse a
    lot.

    Oopsie! There was a bug in 2.3 that made version blocks
    cause error messages. Version 2.4 just fixes that bug. If you
    just want to patch your source, change tags.c line 1857 from:

    code = TF_LANGUAGE;

    to:

    code = TF_VERSION;

    I just committed the calltips patch to CVS. Version 3.0 is the
    version 3.0 of the patch is the version that was committed. I think
    the only difference between this and 2.4 is extra documentation.

    Any volunteers to backport this puppy to NEdit 5.3? :^)
