NetBeans jVi Module 1.0 Available
By: Admin, 13 Jul 2007
Release 1.0.2 of jVi for NetBeans is now available and tested with 5.5/5.5.1/6.0. There is online documentation and it is recommended to read "jVi in NetBeans"; for proper undo/redo granularity there is a small optional patch to netbeans.
jVi allows vi/vim user to be immediately comfortable in the NetBeans editor, while having IDE editing features such as code completion and hint/error markups and corrective actions. There are 200 normal mode commands including vim's visual block mode, tag stack and external process commands and filters as with the "!" commands; see recent changes.
For NON-vi/vim users who wish only to use jVi's extensive Rectangular Edit functions there is javahelpset on Block Mode with examples and instructions on how to temporarily enable jVi only for Rectangular Edit functions.
