python tool for ultraedit

P: n/a
dear c.l.p,

I'm posting a Py script to change the wordfile
from inside the UE editor. Define this into
the adv. tool menu.

I found 100 posts in groups.google discussing
Python and UltraEdit.

Since UltraEdit is only happy with 10 parts in
a Wordfile, it is convenient to have multiple
wordfiles, with no more than 10 styles per wf.

To keep a wf associated to a script, add a tag
in the comment header:

"""
wordfile: e:/path/mywordfile.txt
"""
http://mysite.verizon.net/res1ur2j/SwitchWF.zip

------ begin SwitchWF.py ------------
#!e:/Python22/python
"""
script: SwitchWF.py
keywords: enum window win32api handle callback
author: tl***********@CHENEYyahoo.com
relatedDoc=Selkey.png
wordfile: "C:/Progra~1/UltraEdit/WORDFILE.TXT" 3

UE macro to highlight the wf tag
------- start macro ------
InsertMode
ColumnModeOff
HexOff
UnixReOn
GotoLine 1
Find RegExp "\swordfile:"
IfFound
Find RegExp "\S"
StartSelect
Key END
EndSelect
EndIf
------ end macro ---------
