Like so many other programmers, I adore TextMate. For that reasons, here are two simple features that I’d enjoy seeing in the next version:
- A case-preserving search and replace tool. If I search for a string like
my_classand want to replace it with
my_new_class, I’d like
my_classto transform into
my_new_classat the same time that
- A version of search and replace that also edits filenames. If I replace
MyNewClasseverywhere, I’d like to have the file named
MyNewClass.javaat the same time.
Both of these would save me from a ton of stupid code drift problems while performing a global search and replace. Do other people think these are interesting enough to merit suggesting them directly to Allan Oddgaard?
