Q40755: Useful Macros for the Microsoft Editor
Article: Q40755 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 | 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 16-MAY-1989 Below are macros for the Microsoft Editor that allow you to save a marked portion of a file and insert it into another file. Also, there are macros that speed up marking large areas of text. To save a marked area of a file, mark the area and invoke this macro by typing ALT+V. Note that although the macro is broken onto two lines here, you should put it on one line in your TOOLS.INI file. savemark:=copy arg "command /c del c:\\t" shell arg "\\t" setfile refresh paste setfile savemark:alt+v A one-key way to include the file in another file is to use the macro by typing ALT+I: insertmark:=arg arg "\\t" paste insertmark:alt+i To mark the top and bottom of the text area, use these macros. Type ALT+T to place the marker, then ALT+U to use it. Type CTRL+INS or CTRL+Y to copy or delete the text. Note that if your cursor is not in the same column when you type ALT+U as when you typed ALT+T, the area marked will be a box rather than a set of lines. Note also that the marked area will NOT show up on the screen. tempmark:=arg arg "temp" mark usemark:=arg "temp" tempmark:alt+t usemark:alt+u
