7.00.7 is out. Has anyone tested and compared it to the previous versions?April 12, 2008 at 11:46 am in reply to: Make Highlight matching parentheses/brackets more visible #5658
Yutaka, currently matching parentheses are only highlighted when you place the cursor to the left of either parenthese. It would be great if you could make it an option to also highlight them when the cursor is to the right.
I hope EmEditor will then get the attention it deserves. I am tired of hearing all about certain bloated competitors, and it’s beyond my understanding why EmEditor is not already more famous than it is. ;)
I second that. I was surprised to find out EmEditor would rely on something crude like time stamp checking to detect file changes. Btw, does that also mean it is constantly polling a file’s time stamp? That would be bad. Either way, there are better and more reliable ways, and as already suggested, if the underlying storage is NTFS-based, something like the FindFirstChangeNotification API would be strongly preferred.
In the MSDN library, the path is Win32 and COM Development -> System Services -> File Services ->File Systems ->Directory Management -> Using Directory Management ->Obtaining Directory Change Notifications.
