Its information is outdated!
Links from old emails and from other websites to specific parts of my old website will no longer work.
Delete reason: This extension became obsolete as of TSE 4.50 release candidate 4 (13 Jun 2023), which natively supports syntax highlighting in a marked block.
This TSE extension syntax-hilites characters in a marked block with the same syntax-hilited foreground colors they would get without a marked block.
This can look great or horrible depending on your TSE color settings, so you might have to change those for a pleasing result.
The idea for this TSE extension came from Zhao Zhong.
Linux TSE Beta v4.41.12 upwards
Delete reason: This tool has not enough added value over just recompiling all macros from a command line.
This tool recompiles all macros in TSE's "mac" folder.
With the exception of macros with an ampersand or parentheses in their name. SemWare has one such macro: "find&do".
v1.0.1 Solves a Linux bug.
v1.0.2 Solves a Linux bug in solving the Linux bug :-(.
Delete reason: This tool is too niche and works too poorly.
For a folder or for a space separated list of folders this tool creates a list of groups of those files, the names of which only differ by a version suffix in the name.
This tool was requested by one user. I created it in the hope that it might have general benefits, but my conclusion is that it does not.
In v2.0 the recognition of versions was rewritten. This was much improved, and is expected to function much better for its requested purpose and type of folders. That said, for general usage it functions slightly better but still poorly.

Delete reason: It describes lots of bugs that were fixed in TSE versions after 4.0, and it has been replaced by an up-to-date document.
This document describes undocumented features and errata for TSE Pro v4.4 (2005).
Frozen: This document is frozen, meaning it will no longer receive updates. Since December 2021 public versions of TSE have become available. They contain lots of bug fixes for earlier issues, so it does not make sense to describe solved bugs. Everybody can upgrade to a new public version, the latest of which I now consider to be TSE's new main version.
Delete reason: It was included in TSE 4.50 release candidate 1.
TSE is incapable of perfectly syntax hiliting HTML, because TSE's hiliting syntax is too limited for that.
That said, I came up with an HTML syntax hiliting solution that works well for me by rarely giving me hiliting errors.
For me it works much better than TSE's standard HTML syntax hiliting. Your milage may vary.
Delete reason: It encounters memory problems when sorting a large buffer. The cause lies in errors or limitations in TSE's macro language. The problem is therefore not solvable by a macro written in it.
TSE itself is "only" capable of sorting lines by sorting them alphabetically on a marked block of text.
With the help of this include-file it is relatively easy to create or modify your own macro to sort lines on any criteria.
All you need to do, is to write a "quicksort_compare" function that accepts two line numbers, and returns -1, 0, or 1 whether you want the first line to be before, whereever or after the second line.
The include-file contains a "quicksort(line_from, line_to)" function that by calling your function sorts ALL requested lines.
An example macro QuickSortTest.s is included.
Warning Later usage revealed, that TSE runs into irregularly occurring memory problems when quick-sorting large files.
Delete reason: Given the newer and better PickList extension, there is no reason or need for the PickListFind extension any more.
This extension enhances incrementally searching in a TSE picklist by also searching in the middle of filenames.
A TSE picklist is used by the File Open menu, TSE's file manager, and more.
This functionality was requested by two users.
Installation note: I strongly recommend to instead install the newer extension PickList, which shrinks a picklist to only those files that match the typed search string.
The new PickList and the old PickListFind must not be installed together.
v1.0.2 Fixed that PickListFind did nothing in someone else's TSE installation.
