VIP with gtk support

Hi, guys.

We are now two in this project and I have a few contacts with module authors 
which work could be interresting to use in the IDE/Editor.

There has been quite a lot of talk about this in the perl XP thread.

PPI has PPI::Test, written in Wx! We can't let that happend :)

I'm almost ready with the core componant. Now is the time to influence the 
design of the View base class.

Kaare and I would appreciate some help or input.

Cheers, Nadim.

Hi guys, I thought I'd tell you about a project I'd like to start. I'd like

I want to write an editor in perl, well I've written parts of it already.
but the real work hasn't started yet.

I must say that the sate of perl tools is very bad. The debugger sucks, few
editors have good support for perl and even less can be programmed,
seriously, with perl.

stuff like:

sub GetToolTipInformation
my ($current_word) = Smed::GetCurrentWord() ;

if($current_word ne '')
      my $word_list = Smed::GetLookupList("perl_functions", $current_word) ;
      $word_list =~ s/\ smed_separator\ //g ;

      if(length($word_list) != 0)
              Smed::SetToolTipText($word_list) ;
              Smed::SetToolTipTextColor( 0, 0, 0) ;
              Smed::SetToolTipBackgroundColor( 255, 245, 238) ;
              #display line and column in tooltip
              my $line = Smed::GetModificationLine() ;
              my $character = Smed::GetDisplayPosition($line,
Smed::GetModificationPosition()) ;

              # adjust start index as lines are number from 1
              $line++ ;
              $character++ ;

              Smed::SetToolTipText("$line, $character") ;
              Smed::SetToolTipTextColor( 150, 150, 150) ;
              Smed::SetToolTipBackgroundColor( 235, 235, 235) ;

are cool because anyone can add this kind of functionality. I'd like it to
be easy to participate in the project.

I have my own editor but I want to make a version that can also run on

I have looked closer to vi (most hated editor in the west) lately and there
a lot of things that work in vi like they do in my text editor.

I need a new project to take away my mind from my build system and I
believe this could be an interresting one. The editor is a perl module, a
bit like ex, and the UI should be the choice of the user. It seems that we
can't avoid a curses interface. But when it comes to a full UI, I'd like to
see it written in gtk-perl. There's a lot of things to be decided for the
application and I'd like to get some input.

I'd be very happy If some feel like joining.


PS: hmm what about integrating sprog in the editor?
