Abstract

This is a method for allowing a source editor to provide a combination of function and performance related items, including: Inserting and remembering any number of formatting lines. Flagging lines with syntax errors, than can optionally be displayed. Flagging lines with global substitution errors. Flagging lines with shifting errors. Flagging lines changed for eventual syntax checking. Finding records by sequence number without having to run the chain. Flagging deleted records for possible restoration.
