Ah, I think I finally get it.  A reference to saving, perhaps?

My request may have been inspired by memories of the "5 minute warning" we used to get in elementary school shortly before recess time was due to be up smiley

To add my two cents to the following:

As you probably know, a lot of Windows applications (text editors, IDEs) use F3 and Shift/ctrl+F3 to move to next/previous occurrence (can't talk about Linux or Mac as I haven't really worked with those in the last couple years and I forgot...). I couldn't say for sure what the standard is, but F3 is what I'm used to... Hence the "awkward" feel.

When I think of search-as-you-type functionality, one of the first contexts to come to mind is in the "Find" functionality of web browsers.

The following table summarizes what I found for some relatively recent web browsers for invoking next / previous searches:

Chrome 11Firefox 4IE 8Opera 11
Enter / Shift+Enteroooo
Control+G / Control+Shift+Gooxo
F3 / Shift+F3ooxo
Alt+N / Alt+Pxoxx

"o" stands for appears to support.
"x" stands for doesn't appear to support.


P.S. Thanks for stopping by and also for SmartGit smiley

Yes, but with recent technology Wink

From Exercise 1:

Finally, it prints out a “SyntaxError” and tells us something about what might be the error. Usually these are very cryptic, but if you copy that text into a search engine, you will find someone else who’s had that error and you can probably figure out how to fix it.
1530  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Book: Learn Python the Hard Way on: May 20, 2011, 06:14:07 AM
Has any one here read "Learn Python the Hard Way"?

Some quotes from the site:

Quote
The book is a very beginner book for people who want to learn to code. If you can already code then the book will probably drive you insane. It's intended for people who have no coding chops to build up their skills before starting a more detailed book.

Quote
The book is also free for people to read because I love programming and want more people to love programming:

    Learn Python The Hard Way (pdf)

The book is free to read and give to anyone so long as you do not charge for it and you give them the entire book.

Quote
The book is very simple:

    52 exercises in all.
    26 cover just input/output, variables, and functions.
    26 cover logic (boolean algebra, if-statements, while-loops, etc.)

Each exercise is one or two pages and follows the exact same format. You type each one in (no copy-paste!), make it run, do the extra credit, and then move on. If you get stuck, at least type it in and skip the extra credit for later.

Any chance of a x mins before fade warning (e.g. play a custom sound or some other notification) feature?

Here are some expressions:
Feeling a bit uncertain as to some of the respective meanings, I looked for a Rosetta Stone of sorts...

I heard from an acquaintance recently that Hex Editor Neo is quite nice.  Any one have any experience and/or comments about it?

There appear to be a number of different versions (including a free one).
1535  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: DVCS ? on: May 18, 2011, 10:35:03 PM
My log file is in not in the .setting directory but in \Application Data\syntevo\SmartGit\2.
Ah, my bad...Perhaps it's in .settings for me because I'm using the portable version.

Quote
Anyway... considering all that, SmartGit is probably what I'll try to use more in the next week.
Looking forward to any observations smiley

BTW, I wanted to search the history of a project via the log window and was stumped initially.  I learned that "search as you type" (they call this speed-search apparently) seems to work.  Was this obvious to you?  I didn't find this in the docs...it was again via a posting to that support list.

Then I spent a while trying to figure out how to search for subsequent occurrences -- finally after trying a variety of combinations, I hit on using the down (for next) and up (for previous) arrow keys...feels odd but at least something works.

On a related note, I've started to investigate gitk and am noticing that it seems to produce more search results than SmartGit for the same search terms in some cases.  It appears that SmartGit doesn't load all commits [1] by default and the searching only seems to take place over what's loaded -- once sufficiently more commits are loaded, additional search results seem to come up...


[1] Found a "Load all commits" menu item via the Query menu.

Another SmartGit bit (no, I have no relationship with the product or company smiley )...

1- some kind of optional “console like” textual feedback, some commands log view, like the one Git extensions provides (see #4). That would be good (maybe is that a secretly available option but… I didn’t find it).
Not quite what you may have been looking for, but if you look in the .settings directory, there is a file named "log.txt" which contains various details.  Perhaps better than nothing...

From the online docs there was this general info:

Quote
log.txt contains debug log information. It's configured via log4j.properties.

From a SmartGit support list: GIT commands sent by SmartGit:

Quote
Is it possible or configurable to view the Git commands executed by SmartGit somewhere? It would be awesome if they were displayed in the status bar or a console popup.

Quote
You can find the executed Git commands (and the output of the Git command) in SmartGit's log.txt.

For emacs users, try qemacs at the prompt...and be sure to view the hello.c file in /root/ via qemacs.

A peripheral SmartGit remark:

It does miss some other important ones though, like “blame”, “stash”, “clone –bare” (last one : surprising, to say the least… Unless I missed something).

FWIW, it looks like there is some kind of stash support (at least in the 2.x series):

Still making my first pass through Mastering Git Basics (Erlang Factory SF Bay Area 2010 Talks), but am finding the alternating slides of "git command with brief example(s)" followed by a corresponding summary picture slide, to be a nice idea.

Thanks to phitsc for the ACCU 2011 mentioning where I first learned about a version of this talk smiley


P.S. The ACCU version of the talk seems to be longer and gets further along in the slides.

1546  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Anyone using Silverlight? on: May 16, 2011, 07:17:06 PM
Everytime I've seen video done in Silverlight it's been far superior to anything in Flash by a wide margin.
Started watching a talk recently via Silverlight.  It did seem nicer than many Flash-based experiences.

May be not quite what's being sought after...but there's some possibly related bits in Crockford on JavaScript — Scene 6: Loopage starting at about 00:31:36 (Remote Procedure Call slide) to may be 00:33:29 (Latency Compensation slide).

Slides available via:

About a year later...

The article that makes git click for me was http://www.newartisans.co...t-from-the-bottom-up.html .
I'm revisiting a PDF version of the article and finding it helpful  Thmbsup

Thanks for sharing this smiley

BTW, it looks like some of the talks mentioned at:

  http://skillsmatter.com/event/home/accu-2011

don't look to have links pointing to pages with presentation videos (at least some how they don't seem to show up here under IE8 and FF4):

[attachthumb=1]

Searching on Google for some of the titles does turn up some pages with links to video.  Inspection of the HTML revealed that the links are there.  Odd that they don't appear to show up here.

Anyway, with a bit of work it appears some more videos can be gotten at...though it does look like at least one talk has yet to be made available.


P.S. The following link leads to descriptions of talks and occasional links to slides:
