Code Roar: Academic Edition Features
Code Roar, a product of Ntelligent Design Studios, is a text
editor designed for programmers by programmers. Organized from
the ground up to increase productivity and save time, its
combination of well thought out features allows designers
to concentrate on the task at hand. The following page provides a list of some of Code Roar's features.
The file Navigation Panel allows the user to:
- navigate the hard disk to find files to edit
- set directory shortcuts for quick access to commonly used directories
- Make new files and directories
- Remove existing files and directories
If the File Navigation Panel is not displayed it may be activated by making
sure the left side panel menu item is checked in the Window menu.
The Favorites panel contains a list of commonly used files that the
designer requires immediate access to. If the Favorites panel is not
displayed it may be activated by making sure the Left side panel
menu item is checked in the Window menu.
Templates are a way to extend the capabilities of Code Roar by
creating snippets of code that can be inserted into a file
using a key combination or via the Templates menu.
Find in files is a powerful feature in Code Roar. It allows the
user to search through multiple files for a particular search
The results of such a query are stored in the Find in Files
panel shown in the figure below. For advanced users the results
of up to ten queries may be archived for later reference.
In order to view multiple files at the same time Code Roar
supports the concept of splitting the window. In addition to
splitting the active file each split can be associated with
a different file.
Code folding allows the user to fold sections of code to hide
them and concentrate on the important sections of a document.
Constantly jumping back and forth between points in a file is
quite common when programming so Code Roar provides bookmarks
that allow you to remeber where you were working and quickly
jump back and forth. If necessary you can even save them
when you close and restore them when you open
up the editor again.
Sometimes its important to be able to insert special characters
within your file. Code Roar's built-in Insert
ASCII dialog is meant just for that purpose allowing you to
quickly find and insert one or multiple ASCII characters.
Code Roar is designed to be configurable, to suit the style of
its users. The Settings dialog, accessible from the settings menu is
the way that Code Roar is configured.
