I would like to ask for a minor request: as the title says, can you make the variables and functions bold in the editor? For example the "z" in z:a+%i*b, or "f(x)" in f(x)=sin(x). It would be of a great help in fairly large chunks of input (%ixxx) text. Italic or underline would also stand out, but would be less visible. It's just a thought, if possible.
Anticipated thanks for either answer,
Sorry for the necromancy, but today I have seen, first time, wxMaxima on Windows (yes, I only used in in Linux) and I noticed that the input lines, %i..., are coloured. The reason I'm saying this is that it's rather related to my minor request above: could the variables and functions be made to stand out?
As an example, here's an input:
t2_:if N=0 then sqrt(1-(if case<3 then (if anal=1 then BWp/BWs else fpz1/fsz1) else
(if anal=1 then BWp/BWs else BandPassfsz1/(fpz1fpz2-fsz1^2)))^(2signum(par(case+1)-.5)))
else t1_^Nprod(sn((2i-1)X1_/N,t1_^2)^4 ,i,1,N/2)$
Ord:if N=0 then ceiling( agm(t2)agm(t1_)/agm(t1)/agm(t2_) ) else N /ceiling(X2X1_/X1/X2_) / $
q0_:.5(1-t1_^.5)/(1+t1_^.5)$ q1:q0_+2q0_^5$ float([q1,q1**(1/Ord)])$
q0:.5(1-t2_^.5)/(1+t2_^.5)$ q:q0+2*q0^5$ float(q)$
print( tau,"=",float(t2)," , ",tau^"'","=",float(t2_)," ; ",omega[s],"=",float(ws) )$
print( 'X,"=",float(X1)," , ",'X^"'","=",float(X1_) )$
print( 'X,"=",float(X2)," , ",'X^"'","=",float(X2_) )$
This is one of the 26 inputs in the .wxm document. While I agree that each variable can have its own line(s), that may not be entirely too practical for space reasons. You can see that it's a bit hard to hunt down which variable is where. For comparison, here is how it wwould look with variables made bold:
A minor change to make them stand out a bit more would be more than welcome.
Happy New Year,
