fltk-editor code hinting
« on: December 06, 2016, 07:09:10 PM »
TC's editor has code hinting, fltk-editor doesn't. I use both for plain text and scripts. Sometimes i'm glad it hints, other times not. To me it would be great if hinting could be toggled on/off and a 1-3 step undo wouldn't hurt for oopsy moments, but that's pure bloat! Just wondering if hinting was intentionally dropped or maybe wasn't introduced until after dCore started development. Thanks.

Fltk-editor has now been built on dCore with the latest source from the Git repo of Core.  Code hinting is working.  Seems an old version of fltk-editor was in dCore as it was taken straight from Core 5.x or earlier and not rebuilt.

As for feature additions, this app appears from the FLTK source and I don't have the time or inclination to delve into attempting changes.  The goal is keeping with what is offered in Core.

Running  version -r  in dCore-jessie does not indicate any updates, so i couldn't test/confirm the new hinting fltk-editor, it's part of base right? Actually this system is running dCore-jessie:2016.11.25.23.23, the latest release candidate. Has it been this long or is my update checker not working correct?

No problem regarding extra features, matching base is best. No shortage of editors and IDEs to provide extras. Using bootlist dependencies, Beaver from dCore pre-built is only one 144 KB packages that adds all these features plus more (word wrap, tabbed docs, undo, numerous language hinting, etc.). Thanks.

fltk-editor is part of the Xprogs package, forgot to mention.

Xprogs should have known, tested well, thanks.
