'[OT] Is Wordpad or Notepad ASCII compatible?'

Hi guys

I've always used the dos editor to write my source code in asm
(obvious).

Can I use Win95's Wordpad or Notepad to generate the ASCII file that
MPASM needs?

Thanks...

    Hello Eric,

    You can use either, but to use WordPad you need to select the "Save as
    Ascii Text" option every time you save the file. Notepad automatically
    saves as ascii text. To make the screen more readable in Notepad,
    select a fixed width font such as Terminal.

    Hope this helps.

    Eric

WordPad is slow, and tends to write files out in complex formats
unless you keep your eye on it.  Notepad is adequate - barely.
I use a shareware (registered!!) program called TextPad, by Helios
Software - its designed for programming, and you can set it up to
default to whatever coding styles you like.  (auto indent, tabs, file
extension names, etc) Does good searches too - if you've got a group
of .c and .h files, and want to find (and/or replace) occurrences of
"word" it'll search files in dirs and subdirs.

Eric, Notepad works fine. It is an ASCII editor. Watch out for wordwrap
it can mess you up.

WordPad generates a file that contains other font and document
information. Not a straight ASCII file. It won't work.

Either wordpad or notepad will produce the plain ASCII source that MPASM
needs, but if you are using Win95, why not use MPLAB, which has a "smart"
editor built in?

If you must use an external editor (Multi-Edit is the one I use) and you
want something free, try PFE (Programmer's File Editor), which a lot of
programmer's swear by.

       Why doesn't anyone else seem to use good 'ole emacs? I use it for
programming (mostly C for unix boxes), and it works fine. I know there is
a DOS variant, and there's prob. a windows variant by now (wouldn't know
-- I'm a Linux boy). It's also free.
