Hello.

There is something that puzzles me. :-) I attach two images: one is created with the Ring IDE and the other one is the loading of the same file but with a different code editor. If you look at it, it turns out that in some comments, I put an underline; but although in the Ring IDE it ends where I tell it to, then, when I load it with the other editor, it turns out that either more or less characters come out than I had put. :-) :-)

Best regards.
Antonio F.S.

Hello,

are you sure you are using underlines here? Looks like dashes....

It's obvious: Qt editor in Ring Notepad uses less than one character to present line, while other editor uses exactly one character.

Hello.

Well, I meant to say hyphens, actually.

In any other IDE it works fine, that is, if I put 'x' dashes or any
other character like "*", "=", "#-..., if the source file is later
opened with another editor, it looks exactly the same. That's what I
meant. It's not important, but aesthetically, it's as if the programmer
was not very good with his eyes. :-) :-)

Best regards.

Hello,

It's not important

I beg to differ: this is one of the things we need to address (sooner or later)

Hello.

My observation is more a flaw of mine as a perfectionist. The truth is that there are other issues in the Ring IDE that I didn't want to comment on for the moment, as I prefer to focus on learning the language and mention, if I find any errors, the issues that are relevant.
In any case, it was a bit of a joke on my part; but in my view, everything that can be improved is something to consider, as you rightly implied. :-) :-)

Best regards.
Antonio F.S.

Hello.

I want to state that, for quite some time, I have been researching programming languages. To name a few, Fortran, Cobol, Tcl/tk, Vala, PHP, Groovy, Java, C++, Genie... and I certainly have reason to praise Ring for its great flexibility and potential for extending its capabilities to the web, mobile device, game creation, etc. For me Harbour is a language that could be considered one of the best since it transcended from Clipper, but the freshness and being as well maintained as Ring is, makes me focus more on this ecosystem.
I wish Harbour hadn't grown "grey hair" without a good "hairdressing team" to give him a wonderful "hairdo" on a regular basis, as I see Ring does. :-) :-)

Let's see how everything goes in the near future with Ring. :-)

Best regards.
Antonio F.S.

Hello Antonio

The Ring font is "proportional"
The Othe Editor is "equal spacing" for the characters
Uses "Courier New" in both editors then visually compare.
