"The ActionHooks Plugin lets You run a configured action or macro on a specified event. But the list of available events is not very long.
You should file a feature request at the plugin feature requests tracker to add the desired event."

Robert suggested that the scripts are run inside jEdit -- personally I think this sucks, since you're just turning jEdit into YET ANOTHER shell, along with all the path, parsing, and other problems that come about in managing multi-person builds, etc. jEdit is a good editor -- let it continue to be a good editor, and not add complexity.

People seem to be too concerned about complexity -- my motto is KISS -- Keep It Short & Simple.

So, please, can we get this into jEdit? Multi-Edit and Source Insight, two not-free Windows-only editors, that I cannot use on this Ubuntu box, have had this 'feature' for 10 years or more.

Thanks in Advance,
