Yes, I can see that a macro that adds a row of numbers would be a good complement to addcol.vdm. One might need a couple of flavours of addrow to cope with the formatting of the numbers, and the separator between the numbers. For Example:
1,234, 2,564, 765, 987, 1,000,000, 2345
1,234 2,564 765 987 1,000,000 2345
Unlike a column of numbers, a row of numbers can come in many different formats, and the macro needs someway to determine where one number ends and the next one begins.
Anyways, such a project will have to wait, as I am currently rewriting my Scribe spell checker macro to correct some flaws of v3.0 and add some new features. Currently on the to do list:
-internal buffer use determined by num_edit_buf
- show context of not found word
- new to way to come up with suggested words, which I hope will be faster
- new automode, where if block is set when Scribe is called, Scribe bypasses the main menu, spell checks the block and then return you to your file. You never see the main menu in this mode. This will help as you won't have to spell check the entire file.
- will handle words with apostrophes better: won't, can't, I'm, you're, etc
I am about 50% done.
