Plato would have a "killer" and "World's First" editor if it provided colour coded variable names. I don't mean just one colour, but colours which depend on how the variable is used in each subprogram. e.g.

(a) one colour for local variables
(b) another colour for dummy arguments
(c) another for variables accessed by host association (for contained procedures)
(d) another colour for variables accessed by host association (module variables)
(e) another for variables accessed by module use association

This would give one a visual representation of the scope of each variable and would be very helpful IMHO.

Well! I'm allowed to dream. Very Happy (zzzz).

Maybe one day I can write my own editor with such feature.

A nice idea but a major step up from the current very elementary parsing of the code provided by Plato.
