'A _FREE_ syntax-highlighting editor'

I read the thread on multiedit, and yet did not know why anyone would really
pay $125 for a text editor.  Take a look at FTE, which is free, and will let
you create a pic'ified config setup, giving syntax highlighting for C, Java,
etc, etc...  It really is neat, but you need make or something to compile,
and it doesn't work terrbly under '95, but it works great under linux, os/2,
dos, and NT.  I'll have a config on the web in a few days, just as soon as
I am pleased with it.

I have paid a lot more for editors in  my life. Right now I am using a free
on PFE (programmers file editor). If you are serious about programming
you will spend a lot of time using an editor. PFE is not everything I want
but it come close. If it had a spell checker it would do for most everything
I want and editor to do. I will look at FTE.

Speed beats caffeine by a mile as a normalizing agent.

   Can you please share to everyone, where this software could be
downloaded from.  I am sure I am not the only one, who wish to get this
program.

   Thank You!

And is Multiedit really that much better than MPLAB, which doesn't have to
be set up, and is free?

Bruce:

EVERY editor is better than the one included with MPLAB.  Personally,
my favorite is CodeWright.

Well, as long as we're talking about editors, I'll recomend "EMACS" and
the varients thereof.  It used to be that the big advantage of emacs was
that it was available for everything - Tops10, tops20, unix, VMS, CPM,
MSDOS, HP150, MAC, and so on.  No having "keyboard stutter" as you moved
from system to system.  Nowdays, evolution has done away with most of
those systems, although I suppose it is still relatively rare to find
an editor that runs on both unix and windows.  The "grandpappy" GNU
EMACS comes with billions of modes and special language support.  It and
most of the popular subset implementations are user-extensible using a
lisp-like language.

The things I find most useful (aside from the programmability) include
keyboard macros and multi-file support in the form of "tags" (type a
function name and pop over to the file and location of that function),
and the automatic indentation/etc for language support...

EMACS was like THE original freeware product.  It and most of its clones
are freeware, and most are available with full source code.

I guess you haven't tried the free editors for low end SGS Thomson or
Motorola micros.(much worse than MPLAB)

       Well, your story is jaded, but..  FTE was one that I thought of because
it was of a linux birth, and was what I used under os/2.  I figured that it was
probably alive in DOS and win32 forms, and guessed right.
