I have this so far..

>From this project..
A basic Scripting text editor that works for bash and gambas scripts. fully
utilising gambas Highlighting/modes customisable for each mode type.
(Requires  gambas 3.15.90 for sh highlight features  but not to run, it'll
use C highlight on older gambas)

I've opened a discussion about it and explained some stuff about the state
of the project here..

I'm not sure i understand the ISO_Level_3_Shift thing but i've got it to
produce Benoíts "í" char by checking String.Code >127
as far as i know ISO_Level_5_Shift is for Shift-AltGr but im not sure about
it all.

I't a working macro recorder class that is easily added to any project. it
just needs a text object of some kind.

but it also needs an expert eye.
Any advice would be welcomed about the macro recorder and AltGr/Shift-AltGr
methods or anything else i'm not understanding.
Gambas team, feel free to rip the macro code (half of it's Benoíts anyway
lol) i used/ripped code and styles from the Desktop.class both to ensure a
compatible style for better understand for others and because i wanted to
do Desktop.SandKey() but a bit differently.
and also because...
Once it's perfected it needs adding to the Gambas IDE because gambas would
be awesome with a keystroke macro recorder :)
(hence the trying to keep the code "Benoít friendly" ;) )

Many thanks all.
Wishing Well
