Code paste

I am using Zeus 3.94a, with word wrap turned on. Right now, if I attempt to paste a 10-line block of code into a 2-line space on a Zeus page, it will make a jumbled mess of it. The code gets pasted, but everything gets shoved into a visually disorganized form. How can I get Zeus to behave in the sam...

Thank you. And then, to restore the folders, can I then just copy my backup
ZConfig and ZScript folders into my working Zeus folder? Or is there some special way of importing these folders?

I meant Zeus, not Zoot. Sorry.

Backing up Zeus preferences?

How do I back up my default preferences in Zoot, i.e., my preferences for compiler options, keyword options, color options, etc.? I mean, which files should I copy to preserve this information in case of a system crash? Then, can I restore the information by simply copying the files back into the Ze...

Somehow, my previous message got sent before I finished it. Here is the complete message: Thank you. For the Forth language, I have made the following number string, which seems to work: [.]*[+]*[-]*[0-9]+[.]*[0-9]*[eE]*[+]*[-]*[0-9]* Now, I have another question. In Forth, strings are compiled by e...

Thank you. For the Forth language, I have made the following number string, which seems to work: [.]*[+]*[-]*[0-9]+[.]*[0-9]*[eE]*[+]*[-]*[0-9]* Now, I have another question. In Forth, strings are compiled by enclosing them in quotes with a leading space, as in: " THIS IS A QUOTE" The first " must b...

I do not understand the numbers string for syntax highlighting. For instance, you have provided a default string of: (0x*[0-9A-Fa-f]+[Hh]*)|([0-9]+) What is being done in the above string? How does it work? I ask, because the above string does not work for syntax coloring of numbers in my Forth lang...

Hello, Thank you. But I do not understand the code in the Capturing tools/compiler posting. However, I emailed Stephen Pelc, who is the creator of the ProForth compiler that I am using. By the way, ProForth does not use a DOS window, and it is an interpreter/compiler that always remains interactive....

Well, I certainly appreciate your help on all this. As I understand it, the problem is simply with my compiler, that it just keeps on running and does not know how to quit properly. I will send an email to the compiler people, asking if this can be helped. Since I do not know much about this, can yo...

For instance, using the Boxer text editor, I can do this wthout any problem, so I know it is possible. In Boxer, the compiler command line is: C:\PFW236\PFW.EXE include $Filepath When you run the compile inside Boxer, does the Windows Task Manager show that pfw.exe is still running even after the c...

Thank you. I will try out your suggestion. But also, another idea --- In Zeus, I created a new tool called "ProForth." For the program name, I used c:\pfw236\pfw.exe. For the argument, I used "c:\pfw236\pfw.exe include $fn" (including the quotes). I told it to Run Normal, Capture Standard Output, an...

Yes, this is exactly what is happening. When the error occurs, the Zeus status bar says "The spawn failed as there is another spawn that is still active." And, in Windows Task Manager, pfw.exe is still running. Nevertheless, I would still like to compile files from Zeus, and it would be convenient t...

Hello, The file will compile only if I use $fn. If I try to use "$fn", the file will not compile at all. I have set up the compiler command line using Options/Document Types/Forth Documents. So, using $fn: with the compiler not running: in Zeus, if I say, "Compile," the compiler comes up and the fil...
