e3 (234k) is a full-featured text editor written by Albrecht Kleine, compiled with dietlibc and released with a GNU GPL. It is available in three versions:
Second, a version for ARM Risc CPUs.
Third, a C equivalent for all other platforms, for example on other RISC CPU like ALPHA.
For its command syntax, you can choose between the families of WordStar, Emacs, Pico, Nedit? or VI editors. Newer e3 versions have the UNDO feature built in. Some features like piping through /bin/sed (using stream editor as a sub process) are currently designed for Linux and *BSD only. This opens e3's door to the world of regular expressions. The 16-bit assembler versions of e3 and the C version are limited to WordStar keys only. You can also run the Win9x version under DOS with Japheth's HXRT.ZIP suite, which means you aren't limited to WordStar only.

Note: this e3 is not a clone of the IBM e editor, and bears no resemblance to it. It simply shares a name. The IBM editor is at E3 IBM.
