TS Development Environment

Postby cyberdad » 28 Apr 2010

Is it possible to use TDE (TS Development Environment) for editing/compiling and then importing into MC?

TDE is only available for TS 8.8 and above. Currently, .ELDs created by TS 8.8 and above are not yet compatible with MC. Therefore, you would need to copy out the work as text and paste it into PL Editor.

Hi Bruce, I remember you from Neoticker forum a couple of years ago. Always helpful. Glad to see you here.

So, one would just need to remove any special tags like "#Region" and "#EndRegion" and then copy-paste the code in PLE.
Certainly worth a try.

PLE is a very plain/slow editor not able to deal with more than 5-7,000 lines, and our code is well above the double of that.

Thank you for your kind words.

There are several peer support forum threads here, including one I've posted, suggesting the need to rework PL Editor to better deal with large files. Currently, it's not optimal for editing files over about 3,000 lines. There are some registry changes that can be done to enable syntax coloring, but performance is reduced in this case. We would like to see PL Editor reworked to better accomodate large files, as this is a common issue.

Good morning.
pl the editor is very powerful things must change for large files, but that's all, should not that MC adds a lot of modules without optimizing your code otherwise you will have the same problem as TS, TM is now almost 5 times faster than TS that is why I look forward to the Dom (matrix) to exit ts, too slow, big problems loading etc. .. do not make the same mistakes :-)

It seems that there could be major problems importing older codes in 8.8, especially if you have older closed codes from vendors that didnt longer exist.

Dear TS user,

We've made a change to how logical expressions that mix AND and OR are evaluated, making the behavior consistent with other programming languages. Prior to version 8.8, the expression “Condition1 AND Condition2 OR Condition3” would evaluate to False if Condition1 was False, without respect to the value of Condition3. Starting with version 8.8, expressions of this type will evaluate to True if Condition3 is True.

For example, in TS 8.7, the statement "False AND False OR True" is evaluated to be False. In TS 8.8, the same statement will return a 'True' value.
