For what editor? Where should I see it IOW. Certainly not gedit as it has 
an incurable tendency to move arbitrary blocks of code around in the 
file so its been nuked from all of my systems. gedit is a very capable 
editor, capable of wrecking 2 years work. I've sorted that pan of 
scrambled eggs, 1000 LOC, several times too many, even resorting to 
getting last nights backup out to recover.

I now use nano or geany if a gui is available, which so far has Just 
Worked(TM). It does do some C style code checking, matching brackets etc 
type stuff, but I've found highlighting words only usefull by the spell 

As for LCNC, I wish the highliteing of the line being processed in it 
lower code display wasn't greyed out as it is now, but displayed in bold 
text. Trying to read the greyed out text is getting difficult with my 
cataracts thrown in.
perhaps you could do something about that?

And we are off-topic, again.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
