Re: SQL code coloring
This sounds like it would be a good feature to have, but I don't use SQL (or PL/SQL) myself or know anything about it, so I'm not likely to get around to it in the near future.

Maybe someone will submit a patch... ;)

SQL code coloring
Any chance of a construct for SQL code coloring?
Coloring for PL/SQL would be even better.

Good
J is an excellent editor. Many features, relatively small memory footprint under the JRE and easy to learn even for those who come from Emacs/XEmacs ;-)

I have tried other excellent java text editors and many of them had some serious bug which prevented me from using them.

Keep up with the good work!

Excellent!
An excellent piece of work! I especially like the powerful regexp search and search-and-replace, which even works across multiple files in a directory.

What a job...
I've been using J since 0.8 version, and it has grown in
functionality and strength, and Peter is still working on
bringing us a lightweight, reliable, versatile and
easy-to-use editor.

PS. Did you know that J even opens MS-Word .doc
files ??

Hmm, a calculator program that can email the "calculator roll" would be great. And the new email reading capabilities of awk are phenomenal. awk --email, that it.

Lets not forget the preliminary email support in Outlook as well - Microsoft will soon have a fully functioning email client in this cycle waster soon.

Here we go
This release includes mail support (POP, IMAP, and SMTP)


What was that saying again? "It is the inevitable tendency of a text editor to grow until it handles your email too?" =)
