Have someone use this option in Notepadd++ ? Would be great if we could set it to make a function list when is editing our PRG (source code).

Hola Pablo Cesar

Yo utilizo como editor el xMate para mis prg's y me aparece
a la derecha el listado de todas las funciones que contiene.
Al darle doble click, se va a la linea correspondiente.

Hola André, gracias por compartir tu experiencia e indicación. Lo que justamente lo que deseo de un editor de códigos é que tenga un listado de funciones que auxilie la sintaxe pero el Notepad ofrece una lista de funciones que existe en el código corriente. Tendria que conocer mas a fondo sobre el editor xMate, no sé si tiene la funcion de selecionar block en modo colunar, si tiene el modo los padrones UTF-8 y ANSI, si tiene suport para vários idiomas y será que este producto no será descontinuado (visto la fecha del ultimo lanzamiento) ?. Porque el Notepad++, no ofrece el lenguaje de programacion xBase y eso nos deja al margen de los recursos.


Hi André, thanks for sharing your experience and indication. What I want just a code editor é have a list of functions that the sintaxe helpers but Notepad offers a list of functions that exist in the current code. I do not know if it has Select block in colunar mode, if you have the standards mode and ANSI UTF-8, if it has suport for multiple languages ​​and if this product will be not discontinued (seen the latest release date) ?. Because Notepad++ is not xBase programming language included (in native mode) and this lets us out of resources.

Todavia hay algo de movimiento en el foro de xMate (yo tengo mucho que no entro)
voy a ver si por ahi encuentro el setup de instalación.

There are still some movement xMate forum (I have much to not go)
I will see if there find the installation setup.


Con el cambio de HMG 3.x/Harbour3/MINGW ya no pude configurarlo para generar el
executable con el mismo editor, lo hago con el menu de Herramientas y Utilidades.

With the change of HMG 3.x/Harbour3/MINGW I could not configure it to generate the
executable with the same publisher, I do it with menu Tools and Utilities.

xMate editor is still my favorite even though I am using Notepad++ now. Sadly it is not updated to unicode and all.

And, can it be used in conjunction with HMG-IDE?

My experience with Notepad++ it being so good !

Now I got it with FunctionList.xml for xBase !!!

It is being attached xmls files to be download at Notepad++ folder.

Files langs.xml and userDefineLang.xml have been included just to garantee xBase language and Notepad++ recognize extension file (for prg files) when is being edited.

The only problem that I found is all function names MUST have parenthesis, indicating there are "functions".

You will get all functions be listed as are mentioned in your source code by clicking on this button:

When double click on at any function name, the cursor will be positioned accordingly the name. This helps.

I had installed Notepad++ 6.4.3 in c:\hmg.3.1.5\notepad++.

Sadly I can't see the function list even though I had enabled.

See the picture below:

Also, as you can note down, 'do' in win'do'w is also taken as DO and a separate loop is created. Can't we avoid that?
