SlickEdit® / Re: SlickEdit End of File Strangeness

Does it not seem odd though, that when you create a new file, and without even hitting a key, you look at it in HEX, the buffer already has a newline?

Like I said, I never really noticed it before, but now that I have, it just seems wrong.

I tried to do shared folders on a similar VM that I have, I got it to work, I found I had to do the following:

1) When setting up the shared folders in settings, make sure to enable "auto-mount"
2) Inside the VM add "setest" user to "vboxsf" unix group. This can be done by editing as root (using "sudo vi" or one of the older SE installs with sudo) the /etc/group file and changing the last line to add the "setest" user. My "vboxsf" line in /etc/group now looks like: "vboxsf:x:985:setest". The 985 was already in there before I edited, you may have a different number. What is important is to add the ":setest" afterwards.
3) After changing the /etc/group, restart the machine
4) Now you should find the shared folder under /media and you should be able to "cd" into it.

There isn't an option for that yet. It does mean that creating a file where the last line is not terminated by a newline sequence (whatever it is for the platform) takes more work. You can flip into hex mode and delete the newline sequence at the end of the last line.

If you place the cursor at the end of the last line and look in the status area, the character code information will let you know if the line is actually terminated with a newline sequence. Other editors create an extra line.

There is a less obvious advantage of SlickEdit's method. If you do a regex search and replace for  say "^" and replace with "whatever", with SlickEdit's approach, you don't get an extra replace for the extra line put in by other editors. Also some tools have problems if lines aren't terminated with a newline sequence.

In any case, an option for this would be nice.

I've used SlickEdit for years and have never noticed this behaviour, but now it's annoying me because I'm trying to create a file with a very particular format.

I have a simple text file that has one line and ends in a CRLF.  If I look at it in the HEX view, the buffer is literally, the characters followed by 0x0D 0x0A.  All good.  Now if I leave HEX view, and go to the end of the buffer, the cursor is left at the end of line 1.  It should be on line 2 - following the CRLF.  Shouldn't it?  Other editors do it that way.

Anther way to see the issue is to create a new file, type a single character and hit return, the buffer contains two CRLFs. 

Does anyone have any idea what's up with this behaviour?  Do I have something in my settings causing it?

Any help would be ... well ... helpful.

Share Folders doesn't seem to work on your VM. I got Share Folders to work on a CentOS 5 VM I have. First time I've ever done that.

Nay - no symlinks in paths to affected files and directories.

That part is working correctly then.  If the background cache picks up a change it is supposed to refresh both project windows and tag files.  If there’s is still an issue, then it misidentifying a folder as being removed when it shouldn’t.   I’ll see how soon I can get you a custom build with logging enabled to see if we can track it down.  Are there any symbolic links anywhere in the path?

Some more details: when files disappear from the Projects pane their tags appear to go with them. For example, if a cpp file disappears the function definitions within the file are no longer accessible via "Go to Definition".

Also, I think I made a mistake earlier when I said the Adapter Type under advanced should match your adapter. I think what is in Advanced is the adapter that the VM emulates. I have this at Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (82540EM). What is important I think is that the Name field matches your ethernet/wifi device.

What about the Shared Folders?

Under "Attached to" in Name: , it should have the name of your ethernet adapter. It may be that it took my adapter and that is why it is not working? In Name: see if you can change it to your ethernet or wifi adapter. You can also try temporarily enabling Adapter 2 and see what it places in Name: and Adapter Type, or disable adapter 1 and try adapter 2.
