Subject: SN 5.0 html docs
Date: Wed, 05 Sep 2001 12:59:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Just a small note.

Has anyone else noticed that the HTML docs
included in the source navigator 5.0 tarball
are messed up? Several files are truncated.
I am using the 4.5 docs for now, I don't know
how much has changed in the docs. Some people
might not like them (they are frames based)
but they looked slick, for what little bit
worked. So far, so good on the tool itself.
I thought I might mention the docs here just
because perhaps no one else has.

I have noticed a couple of editor quirks, but
I cannot really characterize them yet.
Basically, you can sometimes change a line, and
it won't appear as changed, that is, it is
colorized in place as you type. When you try
to save, there is no 'Save' box (it is grayed)
and exiting without saving at that point trashes
the file. You can 'save as' or sometimes you
can alter another line and get the save dialog

I brought it up purely for code browsing (I use GVIM)
but one of my coworkers is a WinDoze refuge and
he missed the editor a lot. However, SN5.0
makes him smile, until it pulls the above trick...

This tool does provide a lot of bang for the buck!
When I was stuck on WinDoze NT a couple years back,
I lived on Visual SlikEdit, and this does many of
those things for much less.

Another thing, I have a method of collecting file
path names into a text file, and a shell script that
filters those relative path names into a temp file
as full path names and starting source navigator
using the created temp file as an import file.
It works okay and lets us set up pseudo-projects
that can be stored in CVS and shared between
developers. If anyone is interested in the shell
script I will attach it to the list. Sure, it could
have been prettier in TCL, but I don't know TCL.....
