Sometime a good drawing is worth thousands of words.

Having an image is a good way to share documentation, but many developers like to have documentation in the code.

Having an ASCII editor part of the Editor would be great. Something like www.jave.de embeeded in the Editor.

Here is an example of the type of drawing I would like to be able to edit in my code.

/**
* @drawing
* . startMax endMax
* . xxxx xxxx xxxx
* . xx x xx xx xxx xxx
* . xx xx xx xx xx xx
* . xxx xx xx x xx x
* . xx x xx x xx xx
* . xx x xx xx xxx xx xx
* . x xx xxx xx x xx xx xxx x
* . xx x xx x xx x x xxx x
* . x xxx xxxx xx xx xx xx
* . x xx xx x xx xx
* . xx xx xx xxx x
* . xxxx xx xx x
* . startMin endMin
*

What would be great is just a way to click on "@drawing" (or right click, edit drawing). Then I have an ASCII editor.

Is this an idea specific to Java? If so, it should be moved to the JDT forum.
