'[OT]: editor with 'strikeover' feature'

I need a text editor that has a strike-over feature, where the cursor does
not move to the right after a key stroke.

Thanks

John

Ummmm, don't they all do that? You just toggle it with
the "insert" key. I know MPLAB does it.

In "overstrike mode" in MPLAB, the cursor still moves to the right after
a key stroke.  It just replaces whatever character was at the cursor
position (the same as any editor I've ever seen).
Perhaps the original question meant to say "the rest of the line does not
move to the right after a key stroke", since it doesn't seem useful to
have the cursor not move.

Are you saying that you would like to be able to put multiple characters in
a single spot (such as for adding an accent to a letter by typing the letter
and then a single quote)?  If so, there are characters in the 0x80-0xff
ASCII range for that.  If you want it to come out on a printer, you may be
able to put the letter, embed a backspace character, then put the second
character.  I've seen this done for underlining as well.  This would appear
to be the difference between "overstrike" and "strikeover" modes.

I better explain. I am editing large blocks of text that contain 1s and 0s.
I need to edit the columns in each block. When editing columns of text, it
would be nice if the cursor would stay still so that all I have to do is
press the cursor down key to edit the next item in a column.

I am using UltraEdit now, and it has column mode editing, but still
won't do quite what you want.  But it does have macro record and play.

I'd set up a macro in any editor with macro capability, so that the
down arrow key (or whatever key you like) expands to "down" + "left".

I suppose its out of the question to generate your binary table some
other way- like with another program?  Just a thought.

In that case what you want is textpad (http://www.textpad.com)

Convert it to a bitmap and use a paint program?

Daft ideas'r'us,

Like most crusty old programmers I'm pretty quick
with the type/down/back rythm...
But when working with large blocks sometimes it's
easier to just write a C program to do it for you.
Sorry if that's no use! :o)

It's one of the best features of TextPad that I use frequently.

I have an evaluation copy of Textpad, but cannot figure out how to enable
this.

EMACS has "edit picture" mode where you can set the cursor movement after a
character is entered to ANY direction (I don't recall whether "none" is one
of the options, but it sounds like you really want "picture-movement-down"
(or whatever it's called in your particular version of emacs.  Sigh.)

Configure -> Preferences -> Editor -> Constrain the cursor to the text.
