Re: [code] [textadept] Interactive Lua mode?

Hi Dirk,

you can also reset Textadept's state with its `reset` function, so no
need to restart in most cases, I have bound this to a key, e.g.

keys['f9'] = function()

This works if your code is somehow part of your `init.lua` or modules
loaded from it.

For throwaway code you could also assign Mitchell's suggestion to a
short cut. I'll use this -- I hadn't thought of this before and it is
obviously better than forcing it into a one-liner …
