3.2.6 Using the Internal Editor

The POV-Ray internal editor is an advanced programmer's editor, offering syntax highlighting for POV files (as well as C, Java, and a number of other languages), several indent styles, block indent/undent, column selections, OLE drag and drop, amongst other things. Most of the key mappings are configurable, as are the colors and a number of other options.

It consists of two parts - a custom control (CodeMax from WinMain software), and the 'wrapper' code that encapsulates it. It's important that you remember this, as it will explain some of the behavior that it exhibits (for example, not being able to reassign all keystrokes, just most of them). It is not essential for POVWIN's operation to have the editor present - it is quite possible for it to run without it. However, under normal circumstances, the editor is present.
