One's a crowd, two's a complement... and a video!

A lot of time lately has gone to experimentation with the GUI (and a lot is still to do). Trying out different keyboard flows, widget styles, colors themes, data structure for quicker searching, copy-paste functionality, you name it! But I decided it was time to do a small functionality addition, signed integers.

I've never really given much more thought than -1 is 0xffff ffff ffff ffff regarding signed integers, so learning about two's complement was educational for me. In the end the implementation was very straight forward and uninteresting, you just flip some bits after all!

If a word is two bytes, then surely an image is at least 2000 bytes. But how large is a video? For a quick introduction, and to get a more interactive preview of BEdit, head over to youtube for a pair of minutes and have a look at it in action.
