Hi Phil!

What about *printed* manuals?

I only want a demo for testing. So some limitations (lines of code, numbers of
widgets, time to use, etc) are ok. But from the screenshots nobody can guess
how good everything is integerated and how useable/userfriendly it is.

Mainly I am interested in the editor. It should behave like python-mode in
emacs (indention, paren higlighting, key bindings). This will be important
for a lot of serious developers. Besides I would like to see
auto-completition and a simple class-browser (like speedbar in emacs).
And please say that you are not using the kwrite widget. This one is
really bad.

My best wishes that you make a lot of money with BlackAdder if it's as good
as it looks ;-)
