LUA Debugger

Jussi, A couple questions/observations regarding the LUA debugger: 1) I was using it yesterday, and after some effort was able to get it working reasonably well. However, it failed every time it hit one of the built-in macro functions (debug_output, screen_output_disable, etc.). I believe the messag...

Jussi, I too would like to put in a request to allow this to be configured. In COBOL, functions are paragraphs (which the FunctionFindAll shows fine), but what shows in the function pane includes hundreds of record names (classes) defined in the program. At least they are alphabetized separately, bu...

When did the capability to color brace matching become available? This works perfectly for what I want to do w/ M4 and does it automatically when I position on the paren or brace. Once I changed the quoting chars to brackets, this works great. Awesome!

Tags Syntax Coloring

Jussi, I like the new tags-based syntax coloring, but I haven't used it enough to know whether the performance hit in (my) normal usage will work for me. Anyway, a couple of questions: 1) Would it be possible to use the workspace tag type labels on the tag type coloring selection dialog? I normally ...

Diff Functions

I think it would be useful to have a couple of small enhancements around Diff. First, the ability to select 2 files on the buffer list and do a diff would be useful. Second, I think it would be helpful to have a couple additional keyboard/macro functions for Diff. I know you can start the diff dialo...

M4 has the ability to change the quoting characters. I've changed them to [ and ], respectively, since COBOL doesn't use those characters. This makes the matching work fine.

Brace Matching Problem

I'm trying to use brace matching with the M4 macro language. It works sporadically, probably due to the odd quoting used by M4. For example, in this line (actually 2 lines): define(`procdivarglist', `ifelse(`$#', `0', , `$#', `1', ``$1'', ``$1' procdivarglist(shift($@))')')dnl doing a BraceMatchEx o...

Question about syntax coloring

I'm trying to put together a syntax coloring scheme for the M4 macro language. Keywords are easy, as are comments and a couple other items that user defined words accommodate. Where I'm running it to some issues is the strings. M4 uses (by default, at least) the ` character (back quote?) as the lead...

URL Identification

How does Zeus identify a URL when typed? It seems to recognize http: and ftp: (possibly others). Is there a way I can get it to recognize additional protocols? Specifically, we use an issue manager that uses a URL of the form ivissue://Issueview:nnnnnn/ which I'd like to highlight in text and make i...

Finding Compile errors

Jussi, I'm working with a compiler that only provides listing line numbers for errors, which can not be easily translated to source file line numbers. The full text of the line is available, however. Any ideas on how I might get from the compile window to the source line and use next/prev error? Bil...

Jussi, I can get started with that.l I'll work on the tagger - that should be fairly straightforward. The search_tags functions sound like it would be quite useful. I await it eagerly. Even though I've written lots of COBOL, I'm also not sure if intellisense will be useful or just a pain. The IDE th...

Jussi, So Tag_Class and Tag_Variable are used for data type references? So the word before must be a class or variable (structure?), and then the list of associated tags is shown? COBOL programs effectively define all data as global to the program, and all PERFORMed procedures as global too. It seem...

Jussi, What I was trying to get at is a way to experiment with intellisense/code completion WITHOUT having you change anything. I'm able to manipulate how tags are generated, and it was my thought to create classes called V and P, with members as appropriate. Once I figure out if this is worth pursu...

Code Completion/Intellisense

I'd like to explore the possibility of getting intellisense working for a COBOL program or project. I think it would be helpful, but COBOL does not lend itself to this very well. First question - I know that intellisense is triggered by a '.' or '->'. Is this configurable? Neither of this would be e...

Zeus Termination

I've noticed lately that there are multiple copies of zeus running at times, even though I've shut it down. I can see the processes in procexp.exe (and probably task manager). This appears to happen only on my laptop - I haven't noticed it on my desktop at work. This doesn't appear to cause and seri...
