fiddling with some lua sources

I did ask Mike by IM but he suggested to better ask in here. Since I'm still looking for something to replace iup_pplot I recently tried all the sources available for the various packages such as IM, CD, IUP and so on availalbe from sourceforge. And when use the iuplua_cdlua.wlua from the CD package...

PSPad V4.5.7 - now supports code explorer for Lua

Didn't want to start a new topic, but I found PSPad not much worth it. It got 99% things unneeded but misses something essential such as inbuilt debugging facilities or at least a LuaShell so one could try something before finalising a line of code after one worked out if it does what one expects. A...

Importing PDF Files

The big problem with PDFs at the very moment is as following. If you assume that a red triangle brings you to the external editor/viewer you're wrong. And you're as wrong as you expect that what you got it what you see using the internal viewing capabilities. Second issue is the more important one. ...

TimeLiner (my 1st week LUA experience)

Hi Jane, thanks for the comments. Yes I already noted that every time I cancel inbetween the final blank pplot window appears. I'll correct that. But acutally I'm more into looking for an alternative but pplot, since in fact apart from the automatically drawn timeline the whole rest of it is a real ...

prevent reuse of diagram

Oh dear ... that easy. Wonder why it was set to 'never'. I thought upgrading did keep the old settings. And I believe I never used it with the 'never' settings.

Thanks a lot for pointing me to the right section in preferences.

Yep, found out by now that I might be able to archive what I want using iuplua_pplot instead of wx. but now I'm stuck at the most common unexplained part of FH, which is DATES.

how to

Is there a way to use any of the common LUA IDEs instead of the internal editor?

Sort of 'define editor internal/external'
or perhaps in a way that external ones could load the FHapi things ?

Working without syntax highlighting and other common features IDEs do offer isn't that advanced.

all I get is the error
'The function specifier at position 1 is too long and not valid'
Is there a setting within FH to expand it, or is there any other fault? I did a copy'n'paste from here to FH so any typos are next to impossible.

I'm aware of all the Help topics but, since I'm not natively english speaking it's a bit tricky sometimes.
