in practice, we need to get the word at specific position always, it's a fundamental feature like command SCI_GETCHARAT I think.
could you please add this feature in scintilla for us ? thanks in advanced.
Scintilla'a API tries to support the basic atoms of functionality that can be combined into useful actions rather than trying to provide all the possible useful combinations of calls. You can easily implement getting a word at a particular position using the current API.
