It is already possible to make the Enter key split a line like a typical
editor.
Take the following path:

Window>Preferences>LPEX Editor>User Key Actions

In the "Key" textbox type "enter", and in the "Action" textbox type
"splitLine".

Add this to Santa

LPEX
look at JDT and see how it could be done, at least for free format.
- code formatter
- code generation, e.g. new member, comments etc.
- refactoring, e.g. rename, extract method, change method signature etc.
- syntax check in free-format
- compare, make it procedure aware
- be able to start in insert-mode when editing a member.
- Enter key to split the line the behavior should be like a regular 
editor, Aligned, cursor in front of the first character on the new line etc.
- Tab key should indent the line when in insert mode.

free-format
- skip the usage of /free and /endfree. It shouldn't be to hard make the 
compiler to understand that it's a free-format statement.
- why not make it all-free, not just the C-spec
- what's wrong with brackets?, why ENDxx when we can use brackets 
instead . Then it would look more like java, c# etc.
- embedded sql in free-format, of course

RSE, a great feature but. Add this features/changes
- to be able to use environment variables, that are set on the 
connection, in user commands.
- don't filter files that starts with a dot (.) in ifs (e.g.  .profiles)

iSeries projects
- give us the option to use associated folder as an alternative to 
associated library. Target library would also be great so we can start 
to use ant for our builds.

why not build a small compiler that can be used on the desktop to give 
us the possibility to really work off line.
