If you are using "ED for Windows" (version 4) and are editing .p or .w files, you can use this tool as a communication bridge between ED for Windows and a Progress session.
You can do:
- create a "Compile" button in Ed for Windows
- compile 4GL code from within Ed
- Ed shows compile warnings and errors in its Build results window.
You can also:
Launch Prolint from within ED for Windows to have it check the current sourcefile.
Prolint is a tool for automated source code review of Progress 4GL code. It reads one or more sourcefiles and examines it for bad programming practice
