Sorry, but I didn't understand exactly what you were attempting to
demonstrate in your example.
Please take pity on an admitted moron here and expand a bit on what is
going on in the example.
where does the magic number 211 come from? GEANY_VERSION_CHECK(211...)
Lex says we're supposed to use API numbers, like 0.19. Please,
as a demo, convert that to an int.
When I try, I get zero. But, like I said, I'm a moron.
in plugin_init you have this WTF comment, but do not answer the
Is the param the same as the global? Param == global: true or
yes, I clean my dishes. As long as I can find the sink.
