Padre::Plugin::CommandLine - vi and emacs in Padre ?


Version 0.03


Install Padre, install this plug-in. It should automatically add a menu option Plugins/CommandLine/Show Prompt with Alt-` (Alt-backtick) as a hot-key. (It will later change or be configurable.)


WARNING The module is still experimental WARNING

When you select the menu item or press the hot-key you should see a new window with a place to enter text and an OK and Cancel buttons.

The text entry place is sort-of a command line.

Currently available commands are based on the vi command mode.
