Package org.eclipse.text.edits Description

Provides support for describing and applying textual document editions.

A complex textual edition can be described by a tree of TextEdits. An edit can be applied to an IDocument by calling TextEdit.apply or by using a TextEditProcessor. Applying a text edit can record a reverse edit description that can be used to undo the edition.

Use the standard edit kinds to describe the basic document editing operations:
  • replace a document range: ReplaceEdit
  • delete a document range: DeleteEdit
  • insert text: InsertEdit
  • track a range while the document is being modified: RangeMarker

Other subclasses of TextEdit exist for specialized tasks. Use MultiTextEdit to compose a complex edit tree, or subclass it to provide a custom edit.
