Text Routines

Tookit’s text routines enable you to view (display) or edit text in a window. They support margins, word wrap, and scrolling (when the window view is smaller than the entire window).

The view function supports both horizontal and vertical movement within the window, as well as character, word, and line movement.

The edit function gives you editing capabilities such as character, word, and line deletion, inserting a line, joining lines, and toggling insert and overstrike mode.

If desired, the text routines can store text entries in a compressed format, which can be stored to, or loaded from, either a text window or an array. Text windows also can be loaded from an array.
