Description Need Real Name 2002-10-15 12:42:34 EDT
I am editing a file using the C editor.

- The header comment, starting with a /* can be entered properly. It is syntax
highlighted in green and multiple lines can also be entered, but each line
doesn't automatically begin with a *. As soon as the user hits backspace while
entering the comment, the green bar that highlights the entire line goes away
and no more text can be entered.

- After the header comment is entered successfully, the  "#include..." is
entered reversed as I type it. Basically, after every key stroke, the cursor
moves to the front of the line instead of staying in the current position. Even
if I keep moving the cursor manually and type in the right thing, there is no
syntax highlighting. Hitting Enter causes the current line to move down and
typing (still reversed) starts on a line above the previous one entered. The
editor is also very slow as errors are output at each key and mouse stroke onto
the terminal window from which Eclipse was started.

The errors look like:
"Unhandled exception caught in event loop. Reason: ... " with different Reason
numbers in different scenarios.

I checked in a fix for this.
It solves the C editor problems you mentioned.
So, I'm closing the report.
