Definition Parsing

A short blurb about the definition parsing features coming in the next version of pgEdit. There are two new commands so far, with lots more added to the wish list. I have been using these features regularly for the past few weeks and find they save me a great deal of time. I hope to make them available in a beta version sometime in the next few weeks.

  • Find Definition - Finds the definition source by name (with completion) in any open file. Jumps directly to the definition without prompting if the highlighted text matches the name of a definition.
  • List Buffer Definitions - List all of the definitions in the file with an icon corresponding to the definition type. Full keyboard control for type-ahead selection, jump to definition (Return), or cancel (Escape).

Here is a screenshot for Macintosh and one for Windows.
