Subject: Re: Innosetup binaries for 21.5.32 and later
Not to be too thick, but what is paren-highlighting supposed to do? I
haven't used it for a long time. How did you turn it on?
<b.k> Paren-highlighting tries to visually match a right parenthesis with its
corresponding left parenthesis or vice-versa. This is very useful when there are several
nested parentheses.Here is how to change the settings through the GUI menus : Options
-> Display -> Paren Highlighting -> <None | Blinking Paren | Steady Paren |
<b.k> BTW, by trial-and-error and some google search, I found out that it takes some
settings in the custom.el file in order for the paren-highlighting to work. It seems the
menu selection by itself does not work, without essentially the same settings also being
added into the custom.el file.
<b.k> Here are the settings in my custom.el file that make the paren-highlighting
(custom-set-variables '(bar-cursor nil) '(blink-cursor-mode t nil
(blink-cursor)) '(paren-mode 'blink-paren nil (paren)))
<b.k> without these settings in the custom.el file, the paren-matching and
highlighting does not work, even when you set the menu options.
<b.k> I need to make one correction to my initial characterization : The behavior
seems to be the same for both 21.5.29 and 21.5.34 . My initial testing had seemed to show
a difference between the two versions.
When you wrote: "the build fail very quickly" what does that mean?
Did you try to use VS6? See the 3 simple steps above.
<b.k.> I don't have VS6. I have tried VS Community 2013 (which has VS 2012
underlying it). I will report the problems in a separate mail thread.
