It looks similar to Microsoft's Edit.com. It features a full pull-down menu system. It works with plain text files. You can customize the colours to suit your preference. Swift has a clipboard so you can cut, copy and paste text. Swift also features automatic word-wrap, and other features such as find and replace. You can shell out to DOS from the file menu. Because of the size of the Swift program there is about 75k of the 640k available for a DOS session. Swift is 'freeware'. All the source code is included in the file 'source.zip'. If you want to enhance the program or customise it further then you will need Borland's C++ compiler and assembler.
