Hi Mitchell

I'm ready to recompile in Linux and start testing ;-) Well indeed I have
already started and have something to report...

Code: as of March 30, 2019 CEST, 09:00
Problem: snippets are not loaded from files
I have my snippets as: <lexer>.<snippet>.snip in $HOME/.textadept/snippets
When I try to use any of these snippets (type <snippet name>+tab), they are
not expanded.
Snippets defined in Lua code in the snippets array are correctly expanded,

Best, /PA
