Here's an updated version of the Calltips patch for

some new conveniences added. Many of the dialogs
have been improved.

    TK Soh noticed that there isn't any description on this site of what
    calltips are. Here's a description:

    ** What Are Calltips?
    ***********************************************

    Calltips are little yellow boxes that pop up to remind you what the
    arguments and return type of a function are. More generally they're a
    UI mechanism to present a small amount of crucial information in a
    prominent location. This implementation of calltips is fully scriptable. The
    show_calltip( &quot;tip string&quot; ) and kill_calltip() macro subroutines can be
    used to add calltips to your own scripts.

    I have included files with calltips for the C standard library and the NEdit
    macro language. I hope that people will contribute .tips files for their
    favorite languages, since the .tips file format is extremely simple.

    I have also included calltips-enabled auto-completion macros that have
    several advantages over the standard auto-complete macros included
    with NEdit. See complete_word_calltips.nm for installation instructions.

    Uploaded a new version that fixed a nasty problem:

    Version 1.1
    Added forgotten ':'s to the ends of the default language
    modes in preferences.c. This prevented any language
    modes from being loaded on startup.

    Renamed calltips-README.txt to README.

    Added notification in README that people need to edit
    NEdit_Macro.tips.

    Not an April Fool's Joke! :-)

    Version 1.2:

    Fixed another bug with preferences conversion and added macros for
    automatically using the word under the cursor as a key for looking up
    calltips.

    Oops! The last patch was created without context info. 1.2.1 corrects
    this. No other changes.

    Added Version 2.1, which brings the patch up to date with
    post-5.3 CVS. This will hopefully be the version that gets
    merged in.

    Also added the $calltip_displayed global variable.
