193[vim-multibyte] about your patch (PATCH: Fix for bold characters spilling over left side in GUI)
- Mar 22, 2000Dear Rob,
I heard your patch from Mr. Nam and find it in vim-dev mailing list.
(I'm not subscribed the mailing list. I just see it via egroups.com)
The variable "is_dbcs" is always set to TRUE in MULTI_BYTE envionment.
So in MULTI_BYTE, your patch makes vim force to redraw the whole line.
I think it is not a good behavior.
Yes, the original patch which I had made is tricky. But it produce an optimal
screen update. (I always tested it with "script" program.)
When making MULTI_BYTE patch, I tried not to modify non MULTI_BYTE code.
So, my code becomes somewhat hard-to-read.
To Bram: don't apply Rob's patch until it produce an optimal screen update.
To Rob: What trouble your patch resolves? I just find just a worse behavior in
