What is a UPI macro?
UPI stands for User Programmable Interface and macro is a script. It is a method that you can use to automate repetitive tasks in L-Edit or to extend the capabilities of L-Edit. The language used to program the macro with is C/C++. There are two types of macros within L-Edit — interpreted and compiled. Interpreted macro is a macro that you can write and load into L-Edit to run without the need of a compiler because L-Edit has a built-in C interpreter. It is a great way to create a fast easy macro. A compiled macro is a macro that is compiled into a DLL file. The only compiler that we currently support is MS Visual C++ or MS Visual .NET. A compiled macro can run much faster than an interpreted macro. With compiled macros, you can create more powerful macros by using the MFC library or the Window API functions.
