AlphaX is a Mac OS X native version of the Alpha8 text editor.
AlphaX is driven by the extensible open-source AlphaTcl script library, containing very popular HTML & LaTeX syntax coloring and editing modes as well as modes for C, Perl, Tcl, Fortran and much more.
What's new in AlphaX
Version 8.0.2 is primarily a maintenance update which fixes some minor bugs
with a few enhancements to the underlying AlphaTcl library.
The "Help > Report A Bug" routines have been updated to make it easier
for users to report problems with AlphaX and the AlphaTcl suite of files.
The initial "reportABug" dialog includes options for starting a "stack
trace" for any defined procedure as well as attaching a local file to a
previously reported bug that is logged in the Alpha-Bugzilla database.
The "Known Bugs" and "Debugging Help" files have also been updated; the
latter contains more information about what to do (and what not to do) if you
encounter problems with this distribution.
When the new package: autoWrapComments is turned on, text that is typed
in in a commented line will be automatically wrapped even if the current
"Wrap" setting is "None". This feature was previously enabled by the
package: autoContinueComment .
Alpha's Wiki Menu has been updated, and works with the new "pmWiki"
implementation of the AlphaTcl wiki.
"Fort" mode has always provided support for fixed-format Fortran files.
A new "f90" mode now supports free-format Fortran files as well. See the
"Fortran Mode Help" for more information.
