Abstract or Description

The Climacs text editor is a CLIM implementation of a text editor in the Emacs tradition. Climacs was designed to allow for incremental parsing of the buffer contents, so that a sophisticated analysis of the contents can be performed without impacting performance. We describe two different syntax modules: a module for a sequentially-defined syntax of a typical programming language, doing the bulk of its parsing in a per-window function; and an interactive editor for a textual representation of lute tablature, recursively using a per-buffer function for its parsing.
