X16 Edit - a text editor 0.0.4

   (0 reviews)

About This File

X16 Edit is a text editor for the Commander X16 platform.

Design goals:

  • Use plain text files as the program's interface to the outside world
  • Use banked RAM (about 2 MB) to store currently edited document
  • Be able to handle large texts efficiently
  • No limit to the number of characters per line or the number of lines in a document (other than the available RAM)
  • Simple user interface inspired by GNU Nano
  • Implement basic editing functions well - refrain from making it too feature-rich
  • Support both ISO and PETSCII mode
  • Consider supporting syntax highlighting, if it can be done efficiently

Tested with emulator version r38. Run with the following command:

  • x16emu -sdcard sdcard.img -prg x16edit-0.0.3.prg -run
