I am constantly looking-up functions or doing research while coding.
Suggest (in the style of the new feature for in-app previewing of HTML files) to support the following:
- When text is highlighted, button on the contextual popups to search for text at Google (yahoo, bing, etc....I'm happy with google alone); should be sensitive to the amount of text selected -- more than a half dozen tokens doesn't make sense for a search engine lookup.
Editor window would flip from code view to UIWebView and performs the search.
- Alternately, with no code highlighted, ability to pull up Google search page and enter a manual search.
- State should be maintained in the WebView so that I have access to the browser pane's history (go back at least), and when switching to the webview, it's exactly where I left it when last viewed.
- If file being viewed is PHP code, offer "lookup in PHP documentation". Similar support for other languages as appropriate.
