my hoped for use of Editra

Postby patforkin » Thu Sep 27, 2012 9:09 am

I am a starter and not a programmer. What I wish to do is the following.
Use the Editra editor for both text writing and for writing simple Python scripts to manipulate and translate my texts.
Imagine that there is a file of sentences in English.
One of the sentences separated into sentence-parts is:
EN sequence: - He has played football the whole afternoon.
Separated: - He |has |played|Football|the whole afternoon.
DE sequence: - He|has|the whole afternoon|football|played.
Translated: Er |hat |den ganzen Nachmittag |Fussball |gespielt.
Can I use Editra in such a context?
Given that I could write simple scripts then I would compile them and execute them using the text as input.
For any help I would be most grateful.
Thanks and kind regards, patforkin.

You can certainly edit any plain text files in Editra so I don't see any issue with making your text files or Python scripts.

You can use the Launch plugin to run your scripts and pass the files in as parameters to the script to compile them so I think you should be covered if I am understanding what you are trying to do.
