This vscode extension adds a acme-style execution of selected text to vscode.
vscode does not support binding to middle-mouse-button, and does not allow managing text and selections like acme, so the behaviour is a little different.
Executing a command or selected range of text is done using
Alt+Enter. The output will open in an empty file.
To redirect input or output, select a tab group, potentially marking text, and define the command in a second text window, such as a split window.
Then use a redirection:
<command redirect the output of
command to the area or cursor of the last active window.
>command read the input to
command fromt the area or cursor of the last active window.
|command read the input to
command fromt the area or cursor of the last active window, then replace that with the output of
` into account when the selection cursor is placed right at on of the quotes.
