NEdit 5.4

Portfile is: ATTACHED

Description: NEdit is a multi-purpose text editor for the X Window System, which combines a standard, easy to use, graphical user interface with the thorough functionality and stability required by users who edit text eight hours a day. It provides intensive support for development in a wide variety of languages, text processors, and other tools, but at the same time can be used productively by just about anyone who needs to edit text.



I compiled this against lesstif 0.93.94 (lomion@… is aware of it, and plans to update the lesstif port soon). This version of lesstif is untested with NEdit; however, it contains NEdit-specific fixes, so I think it will be fine.

OpenMotif 2.2.2 is *known* to be broken with NEdit, so NEdit will not compile against OpenMotif (to the best of my knowledge).

makefiles/Makefile.macosx changes:

Changed MOTIFDIR from /usr/local to /usr/X11R6 Changed MOTIFLINK to point to dynamic libXm. Patched to add -DBUILD_UNTESTED_NEDIT cflag (required for compilation with lesstif 0.93.94).

Makefile changes:

Added an 'install' target to properly destroot the port. Also, nc is renamed nedit-nc, to prevent name conflict with netcat.

I just installed this with the lesstif from opendarwin and it seems to run fine

  • should there be a problem with lestiff 0.93.36? If so i havnt noticed it.

Should we hold this until lesstif is updated ?

The developers don't like any version of LessTif newer than 0.93.18, and they require OpenMotif 2.1.30 or earlier. But, it should work *reasonably* well. No problems so far with LessTif 0.93.94. Here's my diff for the lesstif Portfile:
