OK, I see. That's not quite the full fix, though. If you go to the last line and start typing, the line count doesn't change.

Fixed and pushed.

Dear David,

The problem is this: you open up a function with two lines (the header and one line) but the counter at the bottom says 3.  The first thing you think is; what does that number represent?  It is confusing.

If you edit a function with 200 lines (God help us), it would be nice to know it is that large.  Having that number is good.

If that number is reduced by one, it is perfect.

The other numbers are all good where they are IMO.

Thanks.

I know. I thought about that.

I'm not convinced that adjusting the line count is the right answer.  We actually do have N lines numbered 0 to N-1.

I suppose we could display the largest line number rather than the number of lines. Then you'd have to remember to add 1 to get the line count...

Maybe just display row and column...? Really: what use is the line count (or highest line number) while editing a function?

Dear David,

Thanks a lot!  Looks a lot better.  I did find one small issue with it though.

It displays the total number of lines.  Nice.  Problem is, it is one greater than the number of lines.  I suppose there is a way of looking at it such that it is correct, but that logic only worked when the line numbers started at 1.  It would be great if the total-number-of-lines number were reduced by one.  i.e. given:

X/Y, Z

Y should be one less.

Thanks.
