Slippery Snippets
Friday, August 25, 2006
  Sneek Peek I'm working on some bundles for an upcoming release and I'm starting to use a lot commands within tags.

Here's an example of something in the Python Bundle:

pf expands to:

print "<{s}>" % <{s:ArgList(Count(@z, '%[^%]'))}>

You'll then get an argument list which varies in length depending on the number of placeholders in your print string.

A print string of "The quick, %s %s jumped over %d benches"
will expand to:

print "The quick, %s %s jumped over %d benches" % (<{}>, <{}>, <{}>,)

(Well not really, as the cursor will be sitting on the first empty tag but you get the idea).

The only problem with commands is that they can take up a lot of space but a good choice of function name can help.
