Please cleanup your build warnings (url is in the URL field above). Driving for
beta is a great time to bring down the warning noise.

Some warnings are obviously innocuous, but getting them out of the way will make
it easier to spot potentially harmful warnings.

If you would, please also look at bienvenu's warnings, since he checked in code
for you.

I was hoping I'd fix more warnings on my Linux box once I started using that
platform more for work, since the Mac platform reports no Mork warnings.
But Linux seems unattractive for development because text editors are missing
a trivial UI operation to block-shift sections of code text.  Anyway, I'll
try to focus on this bug sometime soon.

Emacs can do it. Emacs can do anything. =)

The commands are open-rectange and delete-rectangle. It inserts tabs, though.

Cool!  That's what I was looking for, but all my local emacs users could not
recall how it might be done, though they reasoned it must be possible since there
is a vi emulation mode, and vi can do that (though I've not used vi in years
either).  I even stooped to asking in a newsgroup, with no response.  I don't
mind the tabs, since I'm used to replacing them with spaces since that also
happens in the Mac editors I know better.

I don't know for sure if NEdit will do what you want or not, but I thought I
would throw it out as food for thought.  After all, that is what I use, and I
love it.  IMHO, NEdit is a lot like the Microsoft VC++ editor, if you like it. 
It can be found at  It also works well with Lesstif, in case you
do not have Motif.  Lesstif is at

Your username is familiar. I might look into Nedit later.  I have never really 
used a Windows machine, so one can infer my VC++ familiarity (none at all).  But 
I have already given up using my Linux box over this editing issue.  I'm back on 
the Mac fulltime.  Who knew usability could be such a trivial issue as shifting 
ranges of text in either direction using one single command key?
