This is my personal port of PC-Magazine's TED.COM to OS/2. I have not
had the chance to test it very thoroughly, although I have been using it for
its own development since becoming operational and have not run into any
I am releasing it in this state as I shall be without a computer for
three months, and imagine some people could find it useful in the interim. Any
feedback is appreciated, although, for obvious reasons, all shall go unanswered
until this fall, at which point I will resume work and hopefully make a
polished release including source code.
- The executable has a DIET compressed copy of the DOS version of TED
as a stub. This is code from earlier in the port when I still had to compile
the DOS version to get a working editor. Might never be updated.
- The OS/2 code does not yet have any signal handers. This means that
hitting a ^Break, or more importantly, ^C (or for that matter, Alt-3 on the
number pad) will abort the program.
- Saving to a relative path is not well tested, but is probably broken.
This is dependant on the behaviour of DosMove().
- This port was based on the code in the original release of TED. If
there have been any improvments outside of what I have done, they remain
outside of this code. <send code>
I'm throwing in an protected-mode only version too - TEDP.EXE. Anybody
looking for a DOS-only executable is looking in the wrong place. <g>
