paste command great, lacking special whitespace
« on: December 16, 2007, 12:16 AM »
hello,

i have been playing with the beta with the paste command for a while, it is great, unfortunately there are some bugs with using special whitespace (tab, newline, etc) I can only assume this may effect some special characters as well, but perhaps not.

I have tried every variation of \t \n \r\n etc, none of these work... I then tried to copy and paste directly into faar's config window a tab, it was read as a space. another possible fix would be to use (or optionally allow) "s or {}s around the text being pasted. to avoid confusion with pasting "s, it may be best just to use the special char escape sequences... your call

is there going to be a new beta/final supporting this any time soon? I'm eagerly awaiting this feature.
