Recommend a better editor
May I prevail upon the forum to recommend a superior Editor for the Prime.
One of the Apps I am developing is now over 1200 lines and growing.
An editor with features such as:
a. Line numbers
2. Find
c. Find and Replace
4. Make a great pot of dark roast coffee

Thanks in advance for any help.

Happy coding and may you see ' i No errors in the program ' with every compilation.

Why not develop on a PC, test on the emulator and hen send to the calc once you have a major release?

RE: Recommend a better editor
Han, that is what I want to do.

I need an editor more sophisticated than the one that comes with the Prime connectivity kit.

The editor allows not only editing but the creation of source code.

It would be so helpful if the editor provides line numbers.

This would be so very helpful when the Prime tells you that you have a runtime error on line 814 and the limited HP editor does not provide the ability to go to line 814.

Also very powerful features such as 'FIND' and 'FIND and REPLACE' as is available on the 50g would be immensely helpful.

Happy coding and may you see ' i No errors in the program ' with every compilation.

So don't use the CK to create a program. Use your favorite PC editor, then copy and paste into the CK.

Suggest you take a look at Notepad++ it is open source GPL software and is a good software editor that comes with various language configurations e.g. Perl, Python, C etc and can be customised to suit your requirements.

It is availabale for Windows and Linux etc

Check it out here notepad-plus-plus.org


Hope it helps

RE: Recommend a better editor
You might want to have a look at TINN (http://sourceforge.net/projects/tinn/), an editor designed for programmers (TINN stands for TINN Is Not Notepad). The only version that I have used is a dialect developed for R which is probably too specialized for HP Prime use, but maybe TINN itself would work for you. In any case, "GNU General Public License version 2.0 (GPLv2)," applies, so trying it out (and even using it, come to that) will not cost you. According to its web site, work stopped on its development nine years ago, but I think it is still available. In any case, I think very highly of the TINN-R version, maybe you could stand using an editor designed for another programming language, i.e., R instead HP Basic. Please post whatever you finally decide is the most helpful solution, not doubt others have had the same question (myself included.)

I recommend EditPlus3.
http://www.editplus.com/download.html
It is a fully customizable editor with syntax highlighting, line numbers, and
find and/or replace features.
