Assuming you mean GLX2, it does store your script as a work in
progress, so you do not have to get the script to a compilable form in
order to save it. However if you are editing a script using 2
different editors, GLX2 will monitor this. When you try to open a
script that has been edited in a different editor more recently that
in the GLX2 editor, you will get a dialog box asking you which version
you wish to keep. So long as you choose to keep the most recent
version, you will not lose any of your edits.
