Has anyone ever used the program LAPIS? I just learned about it, and it's neat.

Lapis means blue. Well, a non-superintelligent shade of the color blue. Like azure.

But the program to which I was referring has nothing to do with blue. In fact, it has yet to bsod.

Its like a cross between a web browser and a text editor on steroids. It is also in java.

I personally think it is simply the coolest thing since sliced bread. It basically allows you to write and employ macros simply by doing something to a representative sample of a document, which it then repeats for the entire document.

It also employs some neat "lightweight" structures in doing so.

OK, end of rant (for now). Back to my new toy.

>>> superintelligent shade of the color blue

That would be a "Hooloovoo" I think.

I belive that Imperito is refering to the computer program that is found at http://www-2.cs.cmu.edu/~rcm/lapis/
