maybe a simple IDE (not as big and overloaded like eclipse) for LeJos with full functionality for editing, compiling, and linking.
(edit: of course I meant: IDE!) :oops:

Well, if something is overloaded actually is in the eye of the beholder and to some extent a matter of practice, methinks (for my part, I appreciate the ample possibilities Eclipse provides me with).
I agree that Eclipse is pretty ... well ... overwhelming at the beginning, and a particular leJOS perspective for Eclipse would be a nice thing here indeed.

If you look for a more simple IDE with limited functionality, maybe JCreator would be an option for you? LEGO Education is using it in some countries at schools and I once wrote an according tutorial for them: http://mynxt.matthiaspaulscholz.eu/tool ... _leJOS.pdf

I use Netbeans for Lejos programming. It's much less cluttered than Eclipse.

Keyboard shortcuts for opening and closing communication with the brick would be nice. I do a lot of programming that requires Bricx to disconnect before testing, so being able to go through the connect-compile-download-run-disconnect cycle without having to use the mouse would make life easier.

I totally agree.

I would like for the "NeXT Explorer" to be able to work without BCC being disconnected from the brick. Another way, is maybe if you can add "NeXT Explorer" as a default tool in BCC (like "NXT Screen" is), so that you can stay connected in BCC, and still view the files on the NXT.

Another thing, I want to be able to open a .txt file to read, without having to drag it to the desktop, and then opening it from there.

BricxCC does include the NXT Explorer tool which can be used from within BricxCC. I do that all the time.

If you mean that you would like to view a txt file that is on the NXT without first downloading it to the PC then you can kind of do that using the View option which displays the file in a Hex viewer. Not ideal if you want to read it as a txt. I could add an option to view the file using the registered application based on the file extension, I guess.

1, I had to download it separately, and I CAN access it in BCC, but I MUST "disconnect" from the brick before I open it in order to connect to the NXT in the "NXT Explorer". As I recall, I had to put the tool in the directory myself, and that is how I have access to it through BCC. I want it to be like the "NXT Screen" is, where I can use BCC and the tool at the same time.

2 As you guessed, I want to be able to see it as text, and not hex.

Can you put object-orientation on the list?
Thanks, and have a nice day,
