Title: Embedding http links into source code comments?
Post by: Tommy6502 on September 24, 2006, 03:19:47 pm
I often create design and data structure diagrams to help explain what I'm doing in the source code.  I usually put a reference to the file that contains the diagram in a comment. 

It sure would be nice if I could embed a http://... or file://... link into the comment, then the person reading the source code could simply click the link to view the diagram in a web browser.  Is it possible to do this in SlickEdit?

For example:

/* Please see the following diagram:
 * file://project/diagrams/diagram.png
 */

or

/*
 * See the project home page at:
 * http:///www.ourprojecthomepage.com
 */

Thanks.

Great idea! We have a feature request filed to do just that. It is tentatively assigned to v12. <Insert normal disclaimer here about changing priorities and fluctuating development schedules.>
