AlphaX8.0.2

28 May 2006

Alpha8 text editor.

Overview

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:

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.

I have been using Alpha (now AlphaX) many years ago. I've try BBedit and others. Alpha is different in many aspects. Alpha is like a programming environment in itself. It has embedded Tcl as programming language. You probably will find yourself loving that powerful language. MacOSX cames with it out of the box. Alpha Tcl has a lot of work made by many many programmers (real programmers) in it. It covers many languages (La-TeX, C/C++, Python, Perl, Ruby, Obj-C, SQL, XML, HTML with three longs specialized menus, etc, etc.) It is shareware and have been there before BBedit were. You mut try it!!

AlphaX is an excellent, highly customizable editor, especially for programming. But real customization is hard if you haven't good programming skill. However, a very important lacking feature is encoding support: presently, only macRoman is supported; therefore AlphaX is hardly usable for files using other encodings. Latest versions of AlphaX for Panther and Jaguar can be found at: http://alphatcl.sourceforge.net/wikit/

AlphaX is very slagishly updated, if at all. I used to work with it in the past, but the truth is that it has never really recovered from the OS9->OSX transition. It is quite obvious, the deterioration started that day the legendary Pete Keleher left command. He is the only one capable to return the glory of AlphaX. At the moment, TexShop has no living competitors!

Long awaited new release of this carbon swiss army and extremately easy programmable text editor. Things that Alpha makes are yet far, far away in others and you easily can modify it to your needs as programmer or TeX editor. This b16 corrects many bugs (this program has many functionalities).
