Hi folks. I came out of a BBx / BBj environment - new to PVX. (forgive me.
We have PVX ver 14.
Background that can be skipped:In BBx, I created a nice program search utility that I could call, with the pgm to be searched in memory:
and then get the lines of that pgm
0260 LET ALINE$=LST(PGM(WHICH_LINE,TCB(12)-1,ERR=0280))
and then write all the lines of that pgm to a text file (a memory file for PVX).
The objective is to then be able to do different search features, such as a progressive search, where you first search for STRING1
, which leads you to want to search for STRING1
, and that leads to wanting to search for STRING1, 2
, and 3
. So, after each search result is displayed to the screen, you press <F1>
to tell the search pgm, "Search for everything I just searched for again
", and then you add the next string to include in the search results.
Having your multiple search strings all on the screen at the same time, bolded to stand out... You could even do a DUMPF XYZ$
to get the variable values along the way. This could be very useful in debugging a runtime error on the fly.The Ask:
Hoping I don't have to reinvent the wheel - have any of you created a fast editor with these kinds of features (different than the Integrated Toolkit editor,) and made it open source and/or available to the PVX community?
