It seems to me that my particular workflow in my particular environment
has a great bearing on the editor that I want to use.
As an RPGer doing mostly maintenance, I had a Code/400 script that I
used to pick out the file name on an F-spec, reach out to the IBM system
and pop up a window of check-able column names. Select the ones I want
and I have an instant data structure, SQL SELECT clause, O-specs
(remember those?), even a list of TODO comments that remind me what
columns I need to put on the screen. Code was great for this kind of
thing because I could just open another Code window, work on the script,
and then test/use it in real time in the RPG source member I was working on.
It's possible to do similar things in Eclipse/RDi - access to JT400 is
SUPER POWERFUL - but I have to stop what I'm doing, change mental gears,
get into Java mode, write/deploy/test/repeat until the plugin is Good
Enough. Then I switch back into RPG mode and get back to whatever I was
doing. Very much more disruptive than real time scripting.
I have only recently looked at scripting Liam's extensions to VS Code,
so I have no opinion yet.
SEU is unscriptable. No alternative key bindings, no internal
hooks/extension points and a block mode interface.
