Bundles: IDL

IDL Bundle Overview

Now updated for IDL 7.0 (at least the function list) thanks Mike!

Fixed "empty match" bug that lead to TextMate spitting out LONG error lines to the Console.log file and could lead to 100sMB (or GB) sized log files.

Hmmm, haven't really done anything here in a while as everything I need seems to work... also, there probably doesn't need to be a link to this page from the main "bundles" page but that appears to be automatically generated...


Current interface (esp keybindings) is likely to change as people use it and figure out what conflicts with what.


Current features :

- open IDL's builtin HTML help libraries
- search IDL's builtin HTML help libraries
- run DOC_LIBRARY to build help files


To Do :

add features you would like to see here...

Interaction with IDL

A few recent thoughts on the IDL bundle development :

Not sure if I'm going to bother writing more detailed code completion, the builtin completion (after supplying a list of completions) is pretty good. I might see about adding default parameters for them though.

Wish I would, but know I won't...(at least not soon) :

It would be great to have a simple plugin that displays all current IDL variables and their values... and maybe highlights the current position in the code... and errors... I might get to some of this...

If you use the IDL bundle, please note it at the TextMate Poll (click the edit link at the bottom of the page)
