Re. Syntax directed editor via F11
I'm trying to evolve some template/s for Oberon & Forth.
But I want to isolate my modifications to separate directory/s, like
mc
can have separate (local, home, system) menu/s.

So far, under root I couldn't get <F11> to activate 'it'; probably
since
I've messed with re-mapping F11 - and macros.
But strangely, under non-root, F11 activates the 'cedit.menu' menu,
although
 no corresponding text is inserted.

Apparently this cedit facility can't have (local, home, system)
versions?

Another method that I've used to isolate different versions of a
system, is to
 have scripts which:
for systemA : overwrite the relevant file/s with versionA's
for SystemB : overwrite the relevant file/s with versionB's
for 'standard' : restore/overwrite the relevant file/s with standard.

One of the potential great advantages of a structured-editor, is that
it acts
as an expert-system, which captures the knowledge. So you can dabble
with
multiple languages languages without getting married to any particular
one/s.

The knowledge of the new language that you aquire, and capture in the
sytntax-directed-editor is not lost when you don't use it during a
long absence.

I speculate that NO readers here use the sytntax-directed-editor ??
