Tutorials

The Zeus IDE by it's design is a highly configurable, language neutral IDE and while this allows it to be used for many different programming languages, it can also make the IDE appear overly complex and hard to configure.

In reality the configuration process is fairly straightforward and with some practice it quickly becomes second nature. To help with this learning process the tutorials below cover different aspects of how to configure the IDE.

General Topics

Zeus Configuration Model

The Zeus configuration model attaches settings based on a group of file extensions using a concept of a document type and this tutorial gives an overview of how that configuration model works.

Example of Creating a Document Type

This tutorial walks through the process of creating a document type.

Windows System PATH Environment Variable

Zeus is designed to make it easy to run tools from inside the IDE and have it capture the output. However, for this to work the tool need to be located in the system PATH and this tutorial describes the steps needed to manage the PATH environment variable.

Using Which to Search the PATH Environment Variable

This tutorial shows how the Which tool can be used to help debug PATH environment variable issues.
