Textra is the User-Friendly text editor for the Amiga.
It contains a fully-Intuitionized GUI as well as an
ARexx interface with 70+ commands. The package
interfaces with the asl file and font requesters,
supports multiple windows with cut, copy and paste
to the clipboard. Also supported are Undo and Drag-select
with left mouse button, background printing and ARexx
script execution, user-settable preferences which can
be saved. The editor displays fast text and
continuous-movement vertical and horizontal scroll bars.
The package contains full, detailed documentation,
40+ Arexx scripts (including an interactive tutorial)
and a hard disk installer program.
Scripts are provided to integrate Textra with
JForth Professional 3.x, SAS/C, HSPascal and Paul Kienitz's
Q-Blue Offline Mail Reader program.
o Textra now includes a full-featured interface to the popular
SAS/C development environment, developed and generously
contributed by one of SAS Institute's own!
o The new MARKS facility allows you to assign any selected
text to a logical name of up to 31 chars long. Any number
of assignments can be made.
o Users may now opt to use the ASL File requester in place of
the native Textra file requester. Default is the Asl requester.
o Under 2.0 or later, the CUT, COPY and PASTE functions now
operate with the standard clipboard device (unit 0).
o This is the first version to be low-memory-failure-proof!
ANY MEMORY REQUEST FAILURE WILL FLASH THE SCREEN 3 TIMES in
1 second, then wait until the memory comes available.
o Textra now supports just about any mail reader known to
Amiga-Man! Textra 1.15 sports both a command-line option
as well as an ARexx command which tell Textra to
"hold" the calling program until the specified window
o Program now takes note if a file is MSDOS format or Amiga
format and will preserve the format when saved.
o Added the ability to write-protect a window so that it
cannot be accidentally altered while open.
o Before you SAVE a file over an existing disk file, Textra
now performs some checks that nothing else has messed with
the file on disk while the editor has held a copy in ram.
o Under 2.0 and later, Textra will display the 2.x-style
o 14 new ARexx commands, 12 new scripts
o Bugs fixed
None, but additional functionality if run under 2.0 or later.
$25.00 Shareware fee.
