I've been attempting to use the documented method for entering multiple line string arguments to commands without any lucck. On page 22 of the Macro Language Manual it says:
The string argument in commands such as Search("ss"), Ins_Text("text") and Message("mtext") can be several lines long. If you press before the second delimiter, the "newline" becomes part of the string argument and the command waits for the rest of its string — the command prompt then changes to "-".
Prompt: "-" VEDIT is waiting for the second string delimiter.
For example, the following command will search for two lines:
Search("This is line 1
This is line 2")
Note: Prompt changes to "-" here.
When I press after typing the first line of the above example, I just get a *BREAK* and a new COMMAND: prompt. Does anyone know how to make this work? It would be a very useful feature to have. This is with VEDIT (32-Bit) Ver. 6.15.2 02/12/08.
