I had asked about how to add a gutter with line numbers to DrScheme, and Robby explained one approach here.
#lang scheme/gui (require (lib "framework.ss" "framework") (lib "etc.ss")) (define f (new frame:basic% [label ""] [width 500] [height 600])) (define hp (new horizontal-panel% [parent (send f get-area-container)])) (define gutter-text (new scheme:text%)) (define gutter-ec (new editor-canvas% [parent hp] [style '(hide-vscroll)] [editor gutter-text] [stretchable-width #f] [min-width 60])) (define text (new scheme:text%)) (define ec (new editor-canvas% [parent hp] [editor text])) (send text load-file (build-path (collection-path "drscheme") "private" "rep.ss")) (for-each (λ (n) (send gutter-text insert (format "~a\n" n))) (build-list (send text last-paragraph) add1)) (send gutter-ec scroll-to 0 0 0 0 #t) (send f show #t)

That’s a very useful hack, I wish I knew how to intall it in my DrScheme environment. Where should I put it?
That code Robby provided is a starting point; it is his example of how one might add line numbers to the UI control.
The next step is to read up on writing “Tools” (aka plugins) for DrScheme and then writing a line number plugin.
Are you interested? 🙂
I have written one DrScheme tool, and overall it was a pleasant experience, that, for me scratched an important itch.
Line numbers are another one, I am just focused on a few other things right now.
i just looked for a tool how i can show line numbers in scheme and found your site ^^
the code above seems interesting, still it isnt the solution.
Did anyone here already made a Plug-In to see the line numbers? if yes, could you share it? 🙂
btw, maybe in my free time (aint gonna happen soon ^^) i will write it as a challenge, if nobody has written it yet.
It has not been made into a plug-in yet; in fact it has been waiting for you to appear and write it! If you do I would be happy to be a tester.
If you are looking for a Scheme editor that has line numbers you might also try Emacs; it has a line-number plug-in built-in.
