I'm pretty new to JB but finding it a really nice little language for everyday tasks (data manipulation etc.)

My only gripe is the actual editor: It's pretty buggy is it not? smiley

I find Undo erratic, standard windows shortcuts like ctrl to jump a word at a time etc. just don't work, find/replace managed to zap a whole document once including the saved version...

Maybe I'm used to more 'programmer' orientated editors (Ultraedit etc.) but I was wondering if an update of the editor is on the cards?

Two essentials for me would be being able to have multiple documents open and support for dragging selections around a document rather than using cut/paste.

Sorry to moan, I like the language a lot but feel the editor lets it down a touch.

Have you tried Freeform-J ? It's a free download, courtesy of John Davidson with some enhancements by Alyce Watson. You might find some of your requests satisfied.

Thanks for that, a very neat tool for form design indeed.

But... it's not really for everyday JB coding is it?

I still find it easier to code in Ultraedit then paste the code back to JB for running/debugging.

You can use any third-party code editor of your choice. If it can call another app, you can instruct it to call JB and run your code. No need to paste the code into JB.

Helpfile: Using a Different Code Editor
You may use a third-party editor to create and modify Just BASIC code. You can even write your own code editor in Just BASIC! In order to run the code with Just BASIC from another program, include the filename of the desired program in the command line.

Examples:

Jbasic PROG.BAS 'run justbasic with PROG.BAS loaded

As it appears when used in a code editor written in Just BASIC:

RUN "Jbasic PROG.BAS" 'run justbasic with PROG.BAS loaded

or

'include a complete path by enclosing the path and filename in
'double quotation marks, which are chr$(34)
RUN "Jbasic " + chr$(34) + "c:\My Documents\My Code\PROG.BAS" + chr$(34)

No! Just the days you are creating a new form...

Or you could wait for JB v1.01. or is it v1.1? I forgot, but there is a new release coming soon.

The new release will be v1.01. This is mostly a bug fix release. If you go to http://libertybasic.conforums.com and look into the beta testing area you will be able to get a sense of which bugs will be fixed in Just BASIC. If there is a bug fix to a feature in LB that isn't in JB, then of course that bug fix won't apply to JB.

There are a couple of new features in LB that will also be in JB including support for MOD, and new support in the compiler for scientific notation in source code.

Oh, but there will be a HUGE fix with JB2! Because it is going to be based off of LB5, right?
