Shell Script Editor

The Shell Script editor included in EditRocket includes many tools to make Shell Script programming easier. Listed below is information on the Shell Script specific tools offered by EditRocket. See the General Highlights section at the bottom of the page for more of what EditRocket has to offer.

Shell Script Editor

Shell Script Code Builder

The Shell Script Code Builder includes information on the built-in commands / functions contained in the Shell Script library, for example, eval, export, printf, etc.

The Code Builder works by allowing users to select a command, and then it displays information for the command. The user can copy the command name to the editor, and the command / function signature will display as a tooltip.

Shell Script Sidekick

The Shell Script Sidekick provides tabs for Shell Script coding inserts, tools, and the Shell Script Function Navigator. The coding inserts tab gives users the ability to quickly enter many common Shell Script constructs into the text editor with the click of a button, or via customizable keyboard shortcuts. Some examples of code assistant options are control statements such as for, while, if, etc., function syntax, and more.

Shell Script Function Navigator

The Shell Script Function Navigator tool parses the editor contents for Shell Script functions and displays them in a clickable list. Clicking an option from the list takes the user directly to the point in the editor where the function is defined.
