Texteditor in Z80?
« on: 22:17, 04 January 17 »
Hi there,

I am searching for a simple text-Editor in Z80, which I can call/start from BASIC
(i have nothing found until Protext)

Someone has a tip?

Thnx & Bye

AA has some Texteditors in their type-ins, I found ones in AA24, AA72 & the SWTEXT editor in AA53. Maybe the best one there is the one from AA24 (but there all written in BASIC).

  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.

Have you tried Wordstar? I think there's even a German version available.

I really liked "Context", but I am not sure, if it was a mixture of Basic and Asm. At least it was small + fast and even supported some kind of WYSIWYG

Here is another "simple" one which behaves like all new multiline text boxes on a PC etc, but not for Amsdos, source codes are included:

Oh, I didn't  weiß, das it's nur for |CPM. I dachte it might be nützlich to have a German Version, not weil your Englisch ist bad, just because it exists.

Sadly, it's written in BASIC too.
I only found protext at the moment and maybe Prodatron's asm-source-code (which i must convert for plain Amstrad-OS).

George Fagg wrote a Word Processor called TENTEXT. It was submitted to ACU as a 10-Liner BASIC program completely poked to memory from UUEncode. It was in the Oct 1991 issue of ACU, probably the easiest way to find it is on NVG in a file marked ACU91.ZIP, that archive will have 2 DSK images in it, more likely being in the ACU91B.DSK, the file is called TENTEXT.BAS

Unfortunately I don't know if the program will return you to BASIC or not, but @Nich seemed rather impressed with it.

I found that with google's help.
WOW, what kind of cool BASIC-Poker is this  :o
It's a slim and fast texteditor, strange is the save-format (BIN instead of ASCII), no return to BASIC.

I think, this would be my approach, to disassemble this editor an change the needed parts.
(Plan B's are Protext and Prodatron's sources)
