[NTB] Trim white space
The problem was selection of the "use defaults" box just as suggested.
It would be nice if upon saving a file, the currently loaded version
reflected the deleted spaces. I don't mind too much but I can
foresee some people being confused by this.
While wishing, I wish that the line numbering would number the blank
lines also. When I use a printed output along with a different
editor (or speak to someone over the phone that is using a different
editor) I cannot reference the line number without mentally adding
the blank lines.
NoteTab's clip capability seems to be substantial. I have tried the
web site where someone was selling NoteTab documentation but they
no longer have credit card service. Is there another source of
NoteTab info? Especially the clip capability? I have no idea of
exactly how the clips are working with the text file. It would be
nice if there was a summary of the relationship between the clips
and NoteTab and the text file. Also, a summary of the NoteTab
syntax would be useful. Is it based on an established language?
The clip site is oriented towards those already using clips and
doesn't seem to address these things.
Is there a way to use the clip capability to gather text DIRECTLY
into NoteTab from a serial port without creating and loading a
Thanks for the help,

insert a right justified line number in a 5 column field followed by a
blank space followed by the original line, including blank lines. It
ignores the way NoteTab wraps lines -- if you are using the NoteTab line
numbering feature, this should number your lines as if you turned off the
wrapping before you ran the routine. You can run it easily using Wayne's
NoteAwk, or you can make it into a clip using the RunGawk command. (Of
course, you could also run GAWK command line or run prompt, which is
faster, but less NoteTab-oriented).
