All o2bas files in one as Reference
« on: June 10, 2012, 03:44:32 PM »
I will try to keep this up to date every month or so.

It takes any .o2bas file in any sub directory of OxygenBasic and puts them in one file. Except for the ASM subfolder. This way you can do a Find command in a text editor and find how keywords are used. For example do a find on "Select" and you will see examples of it in all code. I figure this will be a good quick reference till a complete manual is written.  I thought of this while trying to sleep last night :)

I just put this in my root OxygenBasic folder, but you can unzip it anywhere you like of course.

In SciTe: ctrl+f brings up the find dialog. F3 to find next.

Last Update: June 11, 2012 Added the source file name is at the top of each listing now.

Thanks Kent. Will give it a try and see how easy it is to locate things. I put all my web-surfing links into one large textfile (about 435k!). It is proving to be a very effective reference even with Notepad.

The ideal place for search tools is inside Oxygen.dll where all the required parsing and semantics are available. Do you know if other function keys can be programmed in Scite or are we confined to F5 and F7? I need to resume development of the OpenGL based IDE fairly soon but it is a major project.

I don't know about scite additional f keys. I just load up the file and it is very easy to scan through a lot of source code to get an idea of how to use something. It is a quick cheap reference source :)
