RE: [NTB] Clip programming with NTP - How far can you go?
- There really isn't much you can't do in NoteTab, since it combines both a programming language and powerful regex. Lisp is meant to process lists, and that can be done with NoteTab. Emacs is a text editor, with macros. NoteTab is a text editor with something similar to macros but you can string thousands of then together to process a text file. It is NOT a Unicode editor, so if that is a requirement, you will not be happy with the results. I convert all the characters above 128 to UTF-8 notation, process files, and then convert them back. A little unwieldy, but workable.
So, if that answers any questions, great. If you still have questions, you may want to provide more specifics about what you would like to do.

Subject: [NTB] Clip programming with NTP - How far can you go?
As someone relatively new to NTP I can certainly see how powerful and
extensible the software is.
Before I delve too deeply into clip programming I would like to know
how far it is possible to go. What are the biggest and most complex
projects you have created with NTP? There's no need to go into detail;
just a brief summary will do.
I am asking because I am curious to know if something like Org-mode in
Emacs could be programmed in NTP. Of course I do understand something
similar in NTP would never match something programmed in Lisp, but some
of your most complex creations might help me to better understand NTP's
potential and limitations. I think my mental block about this software
is a lack of imagination as to its capabilities (beyond what is already
available in the supplied libraries), so I would like you to fire my
imagination with an overall picture of what is possible, and a short
summary of complex and major projects you have created in NTP.
