Sorry for the long absence, been on vaction.

I've rewritten my type ahead program, it should
now work the way it's suppose to.

You now have to acknowledge all Keywords, you
can use either the Space bar or Tab key.

The Keyword file has about 18,000 Keywords so it
should cover most everything.

It now has the ability to make changes or
corrections to existing code.

You can download the latest from my web site:

The program is called AsmTypeA and read the
readme file.

Let me know what you think.

I hate it when hard work goes unnoticed....

Looks pretty good to me, I noticed it still fights a bit when trying to spell out somevariable "Starve", as it keeps replacing itself with other stuff..

As well i find that if you force your own spelling of what ever, and hit return it leave it still in red on the page...

These are the two things i can find that need some brushing up on... other than this.. good work!

Where are you entering "Starve", I tried it in
all three fields (Instruction, Function, and
Message and everywhere else and I get Starve.

If you have a variable name that has the same
first characters as a Keyword, just type over
through your name and then press the Insert key
and it will remove the remaining portion of the word. Don't press the enter key.

Variable function name = Find
When you type in call Fi
you will get FindAtom, just type up tp the "A"
and press the Insert key.

If i remember it was "mov eax, Starve" or something to that effect... I wasn't writing a progie, just testing it out..

When I type in:
mov eax, Starve

I get:

1. mov eax, S
2. mov eax, ST_ADVISE
5. mov eax, Starv
6. mov eax, Starve

I thought that is the way it's suppose to be.

ahh now i see my mistake...

When i saw it start to capitolize my letters, i correct and try to for it back to case sensitive... I didnt realize you'd made it smart enought to revert back...

Kool... anyways im not knocking it... just need a user manual :)

Yeah, looks like it has a great deal of functionality, but I getting letters doubling and carriage returns that are unexpected. This might be a win2k thing. I can't get it to work right?

I did test it with NT 4.0, but not after I made
some last changes, I'll go back and beat it up
with NT again. Usually if a program works with
NT it will work with Win2k.

Thanks for testing.

I just typed in a small program using NT and
everything came out ok.

What options were you using?

You enter the text starting in column one and
you enter everything in lower case, even the
under bar, except for handles and user defined

You acknowledge the Keyword with either the Space
bar or Tab key.

Let the program do the work for you.

Could you show me the line of text you entered?

I'm not sure what's going on? I typed:

mov eax, Stuff

and I end up with:

m mov eeax Stuff

Maybe someone else could test it on 2K? I'll test more when I get home - it was really bad. I got the gist of what suppose to happen, but there is something wrong somewhere?

Testing it on NT here at work: very strange, it works if I type slow, but fast typing messes up. Just simple typing 'mov' and a space quickly will get me 'MOVEFILE_COPY_ALLOWED'. But if I type slow, it tabs and gives me the intended instruction.

I'm not the fastest typer in the world, but I
typed "mov" as fast as I could and I even placed
my fingers over the "m" "o" "v" keys and pressed
them in sequence and I can't get it to fail.

I have received quite a bit of email and so far
it's all been positive, maybe the folks that have
a problem don't bother to send an email.

But it looks like I might need some testers for Win2k.

I would like to get it working on all platforms
so I can place the routine in my AsmEdit program.
