holly craps! i'm an old dinosaur been coding for 33 years! let me put my two cents on helping source code to be SELF documented... you need to learn just TWO keys: 1) TAB (aka, tab key, chr(9)) 2) LF (aka enter key, CR, LF, CR+LF, chr(10), chr(13)... and so) and don't be shy... be overgenerous! :-) i mean... any rookie can use SHIFT-F2 all the time, but there is a very hidden pleasure on pressing PG-DN until you RECOGNIZE the part of code you're looking for could be just for hackers, indeed, but doing it in double 20+ inches' this day monitors... feels reaaaaaaly cooool :-) if almost everybody learn to use tab for "horizontal" indent... why not encourage them to do the same with "vertical" indentation, separating pieces of code in meaningful and recognizable (i swear) chunks? this relies in a past century theory about using both your brain hemispheres AT ONCE, the logical one and the "visual/creative" one be an intellectual-artist! br
