FrexxEd is probably the most configurable/programmable text editor made
for the Amiga. It uses the one-window concept, where a multiple of
views are displayed in the same window.
The main mission with FrexxEd has been to create an editor which is
capable of doing whatever *YOU* want it to. To enable *very* much
reprogramming/configuration for those who feel the need.
A few of FrexxEd's features include:
o 100% recursive undo, changeable undobuffer size and on/off toggle
o unlimited number of buffers/blocks/macros in memory
o unlimited line lengths and buffer sizes
o 100% programmable, everything can be done by a script instead of
o *very* C-like programming language (FPL)
o clipboard support, export to/import from any unit
o uses V39-style memory pools
o V39 aware, uses V39 functions when available
o easy macro record/edit/view/play/save/load
o customizeable look of any ASCII character (to i.e enable the inverse
CED-look or the xxx Emacs-look or...)
o programmable keyassigns, make any key do anything
o programmable mouseactions, make any mouse action perform whatever
you want it to
o programmable menustrip, make it contain whatever you please!
o supports XPK and PowerPacker compression/decompression and
o startup-script that loads any file into a running editor
o ARexx port, capable of reading and writing ARexx variables!
o A *LOT* of additional scripts that perform a multitude of different
things. From mousedragging-style blockmarking, archive-flag removal
when saving, center line, binary editor, snake game, incremental
search, interactive C indenting and word wrap to generic assembler
filters, bookmarks, backup, autosave and programs that easy
o binary loading/editing/saving
o font sensitive GUI
o ability to replace/change the workings of any internal function
through an advanced hooking procedure
NEW FEATURES (since 1.0)
o Lots of bugs removed.
o Lots of new functions added.
o Iconify()/Deiconify() uses appicon
o Write protected files can't be modified with the 'rwed_sensitive'
o A *LOT* of New and updated FPL programs
o Doubleclick on appicon generates an exception which does a
WindowToFront() by default.
o Full regular expression search/replace, Emacs/UNIX style.
o Smaller and faster executable
o fpl.library v10 with lots of new features (100% ANSI C style when
dealing with the &&, || and ?: operators, built-in sprintf() and
o Time controlled function invokes! Once or repeated.
o and much, much more...
AmigaOS v2.04+ or later
Anything below 1MB ram wouldn't be useful
Hard disk is preferred (less than 1 MB is used)
