What ever became of the patch for Joe 2.8 that adds support for mouse control for Joe when running it under Xterm?
Is this going to make it into a future version of Joe? It would be a nice addition.
I haven't forgotten it: it's a huge patch which has both mouse support and improvements to the macro language. I have lots of reviewing to do for it.
The mouse thing reminds me of a bug: autoindent and ` mess up cut & paste. I'd like to add a mode to xterm which causes drops to be delimited.
Well, I've applied the patch. The latest CVS now has Jesse McGrew's xterm mouse support. One problem with it: when you select text with xterm in this mode you can not paste it to other windows.
In the mean-time, couldn't we get a ^T option to turn-on/turn-off the '`' control metacharacter trigger mode?
Don't get me wrong, I *LIKE* the "`" for typing hex, or decimal codes every now and then... but most of the time when I need to cut-n-paste lots of lines of bash, TeX, or sendmail's m4 files with loads of grave's, I >hate< to say this but... I'm forced to load vi.
---And that's just sad when it's faster to save your file, load it in vi, do your paste, save out of vi, and reload it in joe. (Rather than fix 5+ screwed up "`" marks)
