Version 3.4
Released March 2, 2007

Fixed the Word Wrap toggle, Control+W, causing TextPal to regard a file as
having been modified (soft line breaks are not saved to disk).  The Read
All, Read Ahead, and Read Prior commands, Alt+F8, Alt+Enter, and
Alt+Shift+Enter, now speak text of any size -- not limited to 20K.  With
the optional JAWS scripts, Tab and Shift+Tab are alternatives to Control+I
and Control+Shift+I for changing indentation.

The Run with Tool and Run with Prompt commands have been reassigned to
Alt+F5 and Alt+Shift+F5.  The new Compile command, Control+F5, combines
debugging steps more efficiently by compiling, saying output without a
model message box, and automatically jumping to the first error position,
if found in the output.  The Pick Compiler command, Control+Shift+F5, lets
you conveniently configure the ToolCommand and ErrorPosition settings for
a particular compiler.  TextPal offers settings for the following
programming languages:  C#, JAWS Script, Perl, Power Basic, Python, Ruby,
and Visual Basic .NET.

TextPal assumes that the Windows search path includes the folder of a
command-line compiler to be run.  In the case of Power Basic, a batch file
is needed (in the TextPal program folder), which refers to the default
location of PowerBasic for Windows version 8.0.  Command line text may
start with the @ symbol so that a leading quote mark is not lost by .ini
file manipulation functions of Windows.  The text may end with the 2>&1
sequence to redirect the standard error streadm to standard output.

Compiler settings are stored in the [Compilers] section of the TextPal.ini
file.  Only the current compiler settings appear in the Settings dialog,
Alt+S.  Other settings may be edited, however, using the Manual Settings
command, Alt+Shift+M.  You can adjust command line parameters of
configured compilers, or add others.  Installing a new version of TextPal
does not change existing compiler settings.

Sample "Hello world" programs in the above languages (used for developing
this feature) are available in the Sample subfolder of the TextPal program
folder.  They are minimal code for displaying a string of text either in a
console window or message box.  Control+F11 opens the Sample folder in
Windows Explorer.
