Can anyone suggest a simple test editor to use, I know ED.COM is available using SpartaDOS X, but I am using SpartaDOS 3.2F

as the programs I am writing won't run properly under SPDX so ED is not available.

 

Just want to use it to make/edit some batch files

Hello TGB1718

 

Not sure if it'll work with SD(X), but I'd recommend T:Edit from ANALOG Computing.

 

Sincerely

EDIT.XEX and EDIT9.XEX

should be MyDos and SpartaDos 3.x friendly. The first is version 2.5 and the second is version 2.9

To add another version of same program.

Hello, TGB1718-

Here in attachment is Sparta Editor (I rename it as SED)

It's useful and convenient too.

Take a look, please SED.XEX

 

Best wishes from Moscow

SED belongs to RIF SpartaDOS Utilities.

You may find some very interesting tools there...

Hello, baktra. :)

Edit13 is very suitable editor. Is it possible to eliminate CR symbol?

The dots evidently shows us the end of line, isn't it?

Press CTRL+O twice :-). It toggles displaying non-printable characters. It cycles in three modes. Nothing, dots+crlf, dots only

The dots just show unused space (and also can serve as a primitive ruler)

The CR shows end of a paragraph

Hello baktra :)

I tried EDIT13 and it's very clear looking and the text is very readable!!!

Here <msg     .by...> stanza has some digits - it's ASC("...") of MAE controls...

 

And the result...

Hello, Marius :)

Is it possible to use all ATASCII Pseudographics in PANTHER and how?

Sometimes it's very big problem in programming because some of the symbols are used by editor as control symbols.

I have very fond memories of panther. This was a great tool, and also supported Atascii graphics IIRC.

It was also compatible with SpartaDos disk version. 

Very nice.

 

Overall, gram-by-gram, seems the best of the bunch (reminds me of MS-DOS editing tools). 

 

Very easy to use, no need to invoke a help menu (as it uses a GUI-like drop-down visual representation), supports multiple column-width formats, customizable screen colors and text brightness, and works very well with SDX

 

Way to go!

Can't get this to run at all from the SDX command line prompt.

Nice: I quite like this one. The 'DIR' function could use some means of traversing the Sparta directory tree.

Because this is a DOS 2.0 disk marked in the VTOC as MyDOS disk. Edit the sector $168, change the first byte from $03 to $02, save the changes - and voila, it will now be readable.

It is in fact DOS II+ disk, that's why the difference in the file system organization.
