jEdit Community - Resources for users of the jEdit Text Editor


Macros written especially for jEdit. Currently jEdit has built-in support for macro scripts written in BeanShell, an interpreted dialect of Java. BeanShell is easy to learn, especially if you have experience with Java, C++, or other object-oriented languages. Using BeanShell macros can help automate routine tasks and can extend jEdit's features with a minimum of coding. With the JythonInterpreter plugin, jEdit can also process scripts written in Python. These macros can also be used to make jEdit more productive for you.

Macros for use with Progress 4GL ( v1 by Patrick Tingen)
Submitted by ptingen on Monday, 20 December, 2004 - 07:27
Some macros that can come in handy when working with Progress 4GL:

The macros are:
 - Keywords_to_Lower_Case.bsh   
   This macro converts keywords to lower case.

 - Keywords_to_Upper_Case.bsh   
   This macro converts keywords to upper case (surprise eh?)

 - Make_Get_and_Set_Methods.bsh 
   This macro can make get and set functions for a variable. Place
   the cursor on a line containing 'define variable ' and activate 
   the macro. It will create get and set macros. It also works with 
   multiple define statements. Just select all lines and activate
   the macro. 

    define variable CustomerName as character.
    /* Name: getCustomerName
     * Desc: Returns the value of CustomerName.
    function: getCustomerName returns null:
      return CustomerName.
    end function. /* getCustomerName*/ 
    /* Name: setCustomerName
     * Desc: Sets the value of CustomerName.
    function: setCustomerName returns logical (par1 as null):
      assign CustomerName = par1.
      return true.
    end function. /* setCustomerName*/ 
 - ProcedureList.bsh
   This macro activates an advanced search command and gives
   a list of all internal procedures, triggers and functions in 
   your code. It presents them using the hypersearch panel. 

Have fun!
