Re: [NTB] What is NoteTab for?
- We actually wrote these clips a while back I believe for use in perl...
for one line:
; This Clip works on one line of text.
; It finds the first and last quotes.
; Next it replaces any quotes inside of
; the outside quotes with a backslash and
; a quote, to permit use inside of a perl
; string. Consider whether the perl qq function
; will serve your purposes instead of using this.
; For example:
; print "<font face="arial" color="red">red arial output</font>";
; print "<font face=\"arial\" color=\"red\">red arial output</font>";
; Note: outside quotes are unaffected.

list, I've asked myself this question.
It seemed clear to me that an edition with every imaginable feature in
it was going to suffer the same kind of bloat that the dreaded MS WORD
suffers. I know there is recognition that NOTETAB is too big for some
purposes or Jody wouldn't have pointed me in the direction of the GUN
(Grown Up Notepad) or Metapad for some of the lighter weight tasks for
which one might need a text editor.
Put me at my ease! Tell me v5 will work like this.
(It's already a real pain trying to run NoteTab from a floppy!)
