Why Another Editor? (from the Manual)
There are already so many editors for MS-DOS, why take the trouble to re-invent the wheel? Well, I couldn't find an editor that suited my needs. I wanted one that:
- could do simple ASCII editing, for writing programs and small texts.
- had user-definable keyboard macros, in case I had some repetitive editing to do.
- was small, so that it could be run from floppy.
- was efficient: the most important actions, like cursor movement and cutting/pasting must be done with a single keystroke.
