BrowseTracker is a small CodeBlocks plugin to browse back and forth to recently activated editors and recent cursor positions.

It keeps a history of recently activated editors.

It uses the Alt-Left and Alt-Right command keys to move through the editor stack in the order in which they were activated.

It uses the Alt-Up and Alt-Down keys to navigate to recently mark editor positions.

For convienence there are menu items at the bottom of the CodeBlocks View menu that allows you further control over BrowseTracker.

For each active editor, BrowseTracker memorizes lines for which the Left mouse key has been held down for 1/4 second.

The user browses to previous locations via the Alt-Up and Alt-Down keys.

The BrowseMark is toggled by hold the Left-mouse key down for 1/4 second.

A Browse mark can be cleared by Ctrl-Left mouse click.

All marks can be cleared by Ctrl-Left mouse clicking on an unmarked line.

BrowseMarks appear visually as "..." in the left editor margin.

Browse tracker saves and restores both Browse marks and Book marks across editing sessions.

Download location:

The zip file above contains all source and .cbplugin files for both MSW and Linux.

To install the plugin:

   * Unzip the downloaded file.
   * Close all active CodeBlocks projects
   * Use the CodeBlocks installer at
     MainMenu/Plugins/Manage Plugins.../Install New
   * Navigate to the location you unzipped the file above.
   * Double click BrowseTracker.cbplugin for MSWindows
   * Double click libBrowseTracker.cbplugin for unix

You will have to restart CodeBlocks if there were pre-existing editors or projects open during the install.

If CodeBlocks whines about SDK version or Symbol mismatches, the zip file contains the .cbp project files necessary to compile the source.
