Change Activity Flagging (z/OS assembler & C)
« on: November 16, 2022, 06:29:16 pm »
In many development environments, it is common practice to visually flag new/changed lines to help identify changes and associate them with related changes. I realize that a diff would also show the changes, but sometimes just having that flag is quicker. 

For example, in C:
   a=23;   //@X1 set the initial value
or
   a=23;   /* set the initial value       @X1*/

Or assembler:
   lghi   r1,23       set the initial value      @X1

Does slickedit have this function, or is there an extension/macro that would add the @X1 to all new/changed lines?

thanks,
Mike.

If you have v27, you could try Live Diff. It diffs the buffer as you're editing. It currently only supports git though.

Live Diff is the third item down here:https://www.slickedit.com/products/slickedit/new-features.

We'll have a longer video for it soon.
