Minimum Profit Configuration Directives

The following configuration values can be set in the configuration files, executed from the command line or from the Execute MPSL code... option in the Edit menu. So, for example, if you always want automatic indentation, word wrapping at column 75 and a special ispell command, you can add the following MPSL code to ~/.mp.mpsl or /etc/mp.mpsl:

 mp.config.auto_indent = 1;
 mp.config.word_wrap = 75;
 mp.config.ispell_cmd = "aspell -a";

All configuration variables are in the mp.config hash.

mp.config.ansi_rgbcolor

If set to non-zero, the ANSI driver shall use the GUI colors instead of the text ones. Obviously, it should only be used in terminals that support RGB color mode; almost all modern terminal emulators do (default: 0, use standard text colors).

mp.config.auto_indent

Set to 1 if automatic indentation is wanted (default: 0, no indentation).

mp.config.auto_sessions

Set to 1 to automatically load / save sessions on startup / exit (default: 0, no automatic sessions).

mp.config.case_sensitive_search

Set to 1 if searches are to be done in a case-sensitive way (default: 1).

mp.config.ctags_cmd

The external command to be executed when a tag search is requested. By default is ctags *. Other useful value is ctags -R, that search for tags recursively in subdirectories.

mp.config.double_page

Set the screen width (in characters) where the double page mode is automatically enabled. If no double page mode is desired, set it to 0 (default: 120).

mp.config.dynamic_tabs

Set to 1 if tab columns are to be inferred from the previous line (default: 0).

mp.config.emacs_scrolling

Set to 1 to select scrolling by half screen jumps instead of line-by-line (default: 0).

mp.config.eol

The end of line character sequence. By default is "\n" on Unix/Linux systems or "\r\n" on MSDOS / Windows.

mp.config.font_face

The font face to be used in GUI environments. By default it's "Mono" on Qt4, GTK and KDE4 and "Lucida Console" on MS Windows.

mp.config.font_size

The font size to be used in GUI environments. By defaults it's 12 on Qt4, KDE and GTK and 10 on MS Windows.

mp.config.font_weight

The font weight to be used in GUI environments. It's a floating point number from 0 to 1, where lower values give thinner fonts and higher values bolder ones. The special value 0 (default) means don't care about the font weight.

mp.config.global_replace

Set to 1 if the replace operation must be done to the end of the file (default: 0, do it only once).

mp.config.html_title

The title to be used when exporting a mptxt file to HTML (default: the output file name).

mp.config.ispell_cmd

The external command to be executed as a pipe for spellchecking. It must be compatible with ispell, and by default it's "ispell -a". Other useful values are "aspell -a", if you have aspell installed (a better alternative), or "ispell -a -Tutf8", if you happen to be in an UTF-8 environment and must use ispell.

mp.config.keep_eol

If this option is set, each document will keep its original end of line sequence when saved. If not set, the string set in mp.config.eol will be used regardless of the original one (default: 1).

mp.config.local_sessions

Set to 1 to store session information in the currently working directory instead of in the home directory (default: 0, save sessions in the home directory).

mp.config.make_opts

Additional flags for the make program (if you have a 4-core CPU, it's useful to set it as -j 4) (default: '').

mp.config.mark_eol

If set to 1, end-of-line characters are marked with a special character, instead of being invisible (default: 0, don't mark).

mp.config.maximize

Set to 1 if the GUI window must open maximized (default: 0, no maximize).

mp.config.move_seek_to_line

The line number to be set the cursor to when a successful search is hit (default: 5). If set to 0, the position is not touched.

mp.config.no_text_mouse

Set to 1 to disable mouse support in Curses and win32 console modes (default: 0).

mp.config.preread_lines

The number of lines to read above the first visible line to calculate syntax highlight in blocks (default: 60 lines). There is probably no need to change this, unless using very big comment blocks or the like.

mp.config.recursive_grep

Set to 1 to show line numbers to the left of the document (default: 0).

Tag Description
%V Current MP version

%x X coordinate (column)
%y Y coordinate (line)
%l Total number of lines in current document
%R Macro recording flag (R or the empty string)
