    I read that THE has been ported to Mac OS X, but see no download or other evidence.

    Can someone help? I'm an old XEDIT user who's been using KEDIT since its DOS days. I'm delighted to see an XEDIT/KEDIT-like editor with REXX as its macro language--and even more delighted to see that it (may?) be available for the Mac.

    Thanks in advance.

      Where did you see that? I'm a heavy user of THE and know the author and haven't heard that.

      I just built  THE from source on my OS X 10.5.7 Leopard box:

      You will need:

      The development tools from APPLE
      A REXX interpreter from MACports
      ncurses from MACports

      cd to the source directory, and type in:

      ./configure --prefix-/usr/local --with-ncurses --with-rexx=regina --with-dlfcnlibdir=/usr/lib --with-dlfcnincdir=/usr/include

      then:

      make
      sudo make install

      You should then be good to go.

      I've just now installed it myself. Looks good, but NOT behaving as documented. So I'm going to ask a bunch of questions. ;))
