ZED-128 - Text editor for the C128
Author: Craig Bruce
Platform: Commodore C128
Zed is a text-editor program for the Commodore-128 80-column screen. To
use it, just LOAD and RUN the "ZED-128" binary file. Be sure to save it in
Here is a summary of Zed's important features:
- Works with *BIG* text files.
- 100% unadulterated machine code with high-speed VDC accessing.
- Uses Burst commands for reading 1571 and 1581 files.
- Uses a dynamically allocated data structure to hold the editor document and the "Kill Buffer".
- Will optionally expand TAB characters into spaces while loading a file and compress spaces into TABs while saving.
- Global search and replace.
- Range delete and recall.
- File translation to and from ASCII-CrLf?, ASCII-Lf, ASCII-Cr, and SPEEDSCRIPT character codes.
- Has a feature for cutting and filling (juggling) text lines to form paragraphs with roughly the same number of characters on each line.
And here is its major limitation:
- Has a maximum line length of 80 characters. It will split file lines longer than that.
