Creating a new language for logging
I write embedded software that creates a log file showing where the code goes. When I am investigating an issue in a particular part of the system create a new language so that selected parts of the log file will be highlighted and I can find my way through the mass of information to the parts that interest me.
This works very will for me. However, if I should add a new word to the language then the processing that takes place means that the display is not where I left it. This can be recovered by moving the cursor with the arrow keys which moves the display back to the character where I started. This can be most irritating if I have touched another key, or want to refer to to file while having the language form remain on the screen.
Is this a bug or a worthy development issue? Am I doing something incorrectly?
