Just installed Eclipse Monkey from the Europa Discovery site.

Created the example scripts, and tried to run them.

Editors__Comment_Lines.js, for instance, gives me a
"java.lang.NullPointerException" on line 16, which is:

var range = editor.selectionRange;

That means the previous line:

var editor = editors.activeEditor;

Got a NULL return.

So... how am I supposed to learn to use this, when even the simple
examples given don't work?

Yes, I had an editor window open, and had selected some lines in that
window, before attempting to run the script.

There is also a sad lack of information on how to write scripts... I
realize this is an incubation project, still in the early stages... but
I would expect something available from the main update site to be at
least a tiny bit better supported.

Any help at all would be great. If I need to join the developer's
mailing list to get answers, that's fine, too... as long as you tell me
how/where to join.
