Understand lets you create your own customized workspace to organize information, palettes, source code, etc. No need to choose between separate windows (SDI model) or an all-in-one window (MDI model), this GUI operates in a whole new way. You can put windows anywhere you want. You can place windows inside other windows. You can drag them out and put them on another monitor. Whatever works best for the job you are doing.
Our goal for the Understand editor was to provide something equal to the top programming editors, but also give it lots of features for maintaining and understanding code.
The editor has all the features you would expect, such as syntax colorization, auto-completion and syntax-based collapsing & folding.
In the C portion of the editor, when working in C-preprocessing regions, the option is there to hide or show active & inactive regions. This is a huge benefit for users working extensively with the C-preprocessor.
