building a working text-editor to be used as main driver is kicking my ass right now, the depth of selection wizardry, like where the cursor ends up after text operations, is endless.

A lot of subtle things I've never really noticed until they were gone.


@neauoire sounds like the right occasion to draw out and describe your algorithms on paper. or are you already doing that? :P

@theruran I've already gathered "most" primitives,

But everytime I think I've got it right, I do something with an expectation of where the cursor should end up, and I'm still wrong half the time..

@neauoire my mind is blown just looking at it. your patience will reward you!
