Imagine Team Specman's surprise when we came across this article on Slashdot about "the new E text editor":http://tech.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=09/03/24/172202
This was the first we've heard of this product, and we're curious to find out how the author came up with the name "E". Anyone, anyone ....?
Regardless, since Cadence in general, and Specman and Incisive Enterprise Simulator-XL in specific, do not support the Windoze platform, we shall leave it as an excercise to the reader to modify this open source tool to support an official IEEE 1647 compliant editing template functionality for offline editing. This open source product's homepage claims "close integration with cygwin gives you access to the full range of UNIX shell tools and lets you extend E with your choice of languages like Ruby, Perl, Python and more", so it might be worth it.
In the mean time, please recall the following popular e language tools & templates:
* AMIQ's Eclipse-based "DVT" Integrated Development Environment
* Emacs e template
* VIM e template
P.S. Corey's recent posting on the new eDoc capability prompted a suggestion to support Doxygen. It's a great idea, but unfortunately in the short term (between now & DAC) Team Specman will not have a chance to work on this. However, if a Specmaniac out there wants to and/or has already put something for Doxygen together for IEEE 1647 e, we will be happy to help you post and/or promote your work in a guest blogger spot.
Yikes -- thanks for pointing this out! First, are their any Team Specman readers that can point this forum to a newer version? In the mean time, Team Specman will poll other forums too.
Part II: This question / non-answer is clearly revealing a historical preference for XEmacs, and now AMIQ's DVT IDE -- recall this recent post: www.cadence.com/.../5-min-demo-e-coding-with-amiqs-dvt-ide.aspx
Any newer gvim highlighting for gvim that you know of? This one is from 2001 and it doesn't support ports, sequences etc.
Team Specman is unaware of an e language template for jEdit. However, don't give up just yet: we advise posing this question to the over 2600 members of the Specman Yahoo Group:
The often used nedit editor has nice syntax highlighting as well, available from the nedit resource site:
Happy coding ;)

What about an e template for jEdit?
