    I've searched existing threads on this. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good IDE or text editing program that can import the syntax of a specific API or bring up tooltips. I'm also wondering if any can swap in long flag names for short ones, as it obviously makes the script easier to read later on. The common problem is that many APIs have a lot of very specific commands that can change from version to version, so having to go check on deprecated functions and flags can be extremely time consuming.

    Also is there any way to make Xcode work more like Komodo?

    You're not after syntax, you're after semantics. I think the editor would need to be fed a bit of domain knowledge for this.

    Bleh I still mix up programming terms. It's not an extreme area of expertise for me (unfortunately). Any idea if Xcode can load definitions for semantics and do things like shorthand --> longhand flag replacements?
