I'm trying to run your patch. How do I activate the new
case sensitive search feature?
ps: This is the my first ever patch (w00t!!). Lots to learn.
I assume I should start with the latest CVS version of
NEdit. Should I install all the patch files or just the
latest (I just did the latest). Here is what I've done so
far. Please let me know if you something I messed up.
download and gunzip patch enhanced.2005-01-29.3.diff.gz
download backup.c and backup.h into source directory
and it does compile and link!!!
You have just compiled the CVS NEdit, just the patch ist
missing: Copy it in the ./nedit directory where your code
tree starts and run: 'patch -p0
<enhanced.2005-01-29.3.diff'. Then compile again. Open a
large file, grab the scroll bar and move it; if you see the
scrolltip, you made it!
Almost all new functions should be default to off, so let me
know if anything but the scrolltip (you can shut off this
too) and the selected character count is different. Use the
pref menu to activate the smart search: Preferences ->
Searching -> Default Search Style -> Regex, Smart Case. Then
save Prefs to make it stick. The other new stuff is
described at the top of ReleaseNotes and in the online help.
You can use the unpatched NEdit along with the Enhanced. The
unpatched NEdit will not recognize the new options of
course, so if you save your prefs in it, the new stuff will
be back to default (mostly off).
I Got it running and the case-sensitive search works very
nicely! Usually I only do a regex seach when I specifically
need a regex. So having regex as my default search not what
I'm used to, but I don't see a down side.
Should I close my RFE?
[ 1116576 ] Case Sensitive Search
I guess you will get used to regexes pretty quickly.
I think the RFE should be left open, you never know when the
feature will be integrated into NEdit's main code line.
Please let know about any bugs you find in the new features!
Deactivates scrolltip for continous mode.
Transient windows only transient if no other argument was
given to the action procedure. Fixed.
Also cleaned up a bit on the help thing now that part of it
is in the main trunk.
Adds highlight_calltip_line() macro function. I think this
(or something similar) could do much more eventually, but
I'm not too sure about the interface. Highlighting an
arbitrary part of the tip could be awkward for the macro
I also attach my munged version of Philip Mateescu's
Complete Word macro which uses the new function. Beware,
this is barely tested.
My version of Philip Mateescu's Complete Word macro
+ Some more practical key bindings for the help window.
