    Thanx for that great work. - I've seen that the syntax colors now are customizable - same for tab policy 😎 - Indent (which was a little pain in previous versions) now working fine (testet in 2.0.3 under eclipse 4.4 luna)

    I've also been using shelled for years. I wish they would make more updates to it, but it certainly does the job. I also wish it had a normal Eclipse update site instead of having to download the zip and connect it locally. I recently found a similar issue to the string index out of range issue seen by many people. In my case, it was caused by an embedded database call within the script similar to what follows: cat > $target_dir/data/reset_database.sql << EOF DROP FUNCTION IF EXISTS reset_database(); CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION reset_database() RETURNS void AS \$BODY\$ DECLARE BEGIN TRUNCATE table1; TRUNCATE table2; TRUNCATE table3; TRUNCATE table4; TRUNCATE table5; TRUNCATE table6; TRUNCATE table7; TRUNCATE table8; TRUNCATE table9; TRUNCATE table11 CASCADE; TRUNCATE table12 CASCADE; TRUNCATE table13 CASCADE; TRUNCATE table14 CASCADE; TRUNCATE table15 CASCADE; TRUNCATE table16 CASCADE; TRUNCATE table17 CASCADE; TRUNCATE table18 CASCADE; TRUNCATE table19; TRUNCATE table20; TRUNCATE table21; TRUNCATE table22; TRUNCATE table23; TRUNCATE table24; TRUNCATE table25; TRUNCATE table26; TRUNCATE table27; TRUNCATE table28; TRUNCATE table29; TRUNCATE table30; TRUNCATE table31; TRUNCATE table32; TRUNCATE table33; TRUNCATE table34; END \$BODY\$ LANGUAGE plpgsql VOLATILE COST 100; ALTER FUNCTION reset_database() OWNER TO user; COMMENT ON FUNCTION reset_database() IS 'This function is designed to call all other clearing functions and reset the database to it''s initial clean state.'; EOF
