Hi,       :-)

Sorry, I just figured it was less ambiguous that way.   :-)

I don't see the appeal of MS EDIT, esp. since it always expands tabs
(IIRC). I'm not saying it's bad, just there are better editors out

I use TDE(W) in Windows and TDE(P) in DOS. TDE(R) exists for 16-bit,
but it runs out of memory pretty quickly. And it compiles for GNU/
Linux if you have Ncurses. If you don't mind lack of folds, tags,
undo, UTF-8, or much mouse support, it's damn good (IMHO).

If anybody is really interested, I could post (or perhaps link to) my
DOS text editor feature comparison list. (It's fairly informative but
could always be improved.)

P.S. He's not a DJGPP user (although he still uses DOS on his 8088),
but Jim Leonard likes Aurora and some vi clone (I think the one that
came with Manx or Aztec C). I think I tried telling him about
Freemacs, but he wasn't interested (anti-Emacs, ah you know the
type).    ;-)
