 2    Macros in jEdit are short scripts written in a scripting language called
 3    <i class="firstterm">BeanShell</i>. They provide an easy way to
 4    automate repetitive keyboard and menu procedures,
 5    as well as access to the objects and methods created by
 6    jEdit. Macros
 7    also provide a powerful facility for customizing jEdit and automating
 8    complex text processing and programming tasks. This section
 9    describes how to record and run macros. A detailed guide on
10    writing macros appears later; see <a href="writing-macros-part.html" title="Part III. Writing Macros">Part III, &#8220;Writing Macros&#8221;</a>.

12   A number of jEdit plugins provide support for writing scripts in alternative programming languages, like Python and Prolog. Consult the documentation for the appropriate plugins for more information.
