       codeEditor - A Python-aware code editor written using the PythonCard GUI framework


       codeEditor [file] [switches]


       The codeEditor program is one of the tools included with the PythonCard GUI framework.  It
       is focused on being a simple to use Python source code editor.  It is not intended to be a
       generic  editor  or replace vi(m), Emacs, etc. If you are already happy with your existing
       editing environment for Python source code, there is no  particular  reason  you  have  to

       codeEditor  borrows  ideas and code from IDLE as well as Mark Hammond's Pythonwin, PyCrust
       (the PythonCard shell) and Robin Dunn's The core  editor  component  uses  the
       wxPython  wxStyledTextCtrl (wxSTC) which in turn uses Neil Hodgson's Scintilla. Isn't open
       source fun? In 15 minutes you can have a pretty decent editor by standing on the shoulders
       of others.


       Note that switches must come after any filename in order to be recognized.

       -p     Show property editor

       -m     Show message watcher

       -l     Enable logging

       -s     Show shell

       -m     Show namespace

       -d     Show debug menu


       The  codeEditor  utility  also  provides additional functionality that is not discussed in
       this manpage, because it is somewhat difficult to  completely  describe  usage  of  a  GUI
       program  in  a  text-based  manpage.   For  more  detailed  usage instructions or for more
       information on the PythonCard GUI framework in general, you should install the pythoncard-
       doc  package  and take a look at the various walk-throughs, tutorials and samples included
       with it.

       Once  the  pythoncard-doc  package  is  installed,  the  documentation  is  installed   to
       /usr/share/doc/pythoncard-doc,  and is also available via Debian's doc-base infrastructure
       - find it in the Devel section using dwww(1), doc-central(1) or dhelp(1).

       If you would rather not install the pythoncard-doc package, you can find  essentially  the
       same information on the PythonCard website:


       Although  it is considered to be stable, this is still development-level software.  If you
       use codeEditor as a real text editor then you  may  want  to  work  on  backup  copies  of
       documents in case there are bugs that might corrupt your text.

       Please  report  bugs in this or any PythonCard component to the Debian Bug Tracking system
       using reportbug(1).
