    Coming from XEdit/REXX background (IBM VM/CMS) via KEdit/PersonalREXX (DOS, Win) (Mansfield Software group) to THE and Regina REXX. Still one of the best editors around. The only thing missing, though not trivial to implement I fear, is unicode support. I prefer the old CUI TUI text mode interface.

    Fantastic, it works like a charm under OSX (10.8)

    Same reasons. I used Xedit for years and am familiar with this territory in THE. Now I write .the macros all the time.

    The product is great for us mainframe users who have use Xedit for many years. I don't understand the guy that gave it a 'thumbs down' because it was stated that it is "OS Independent". This is delivered in source. How much more "OS Independent" can you get???
