Collaborative editors[edit]

None of those fit into the topic of text-editors, any more than word-processors do. Removing the list altogether would improve this topic. TEDickey (talk) 09:55, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Agree. Only reason to keep the list around is as a quarantine zone/chew toy for people & companies who want to put their own obscure apps on Wikipedia. However, this text editor list page is quite good. How about moving the collaborative section to List of collaborative software? Andrew Helwer (talk) 17:59, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
hmm - that looks time-consuming: it seems (quick glance) that the collaborative editors which have articles are probably represented there, and the effect of a move would be to move debris there. TEDickey (talk) 00:47, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Sure. Best course of action looks like deletion of the section. Andrew Helwer (talk) 01:12, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
That would be easiest - either of us could do this, if we're agreed (no one else has chimed in) TEDickey (talk) 00:31, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Done. Andrew Helwer (talk) 19:05, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Let me know if anyone wants HMCE back on the web. bring it up at programmersheaven or wherever. (talk) 07:40, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Strike that. Bring it up on irc - klys at freenode (talk) 01:00, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

real-time editor?[edit]

The linked topic gives no indication that this "real time editor" falls within the scope of "text editors", since its description is limited to a discussion of a quasi-IRC client. TEDickey (talk) 09:18, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

  • A closer inspection of the software will indicate that it is in fact a text editor. The "irc client" is a chat interface for editors to communicate about the document they're working on. There's a standalone server called infinote [1] and compatible emacs mode called rudel [2].

Based on that response, it might be an IRC client, but "text editor" was not addressed in that comment. TEDickey (talk) 18:50, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Microsoft Edit: What versions of windows had EDIT? It certainly is not in Windows10[edit]

My experience has a gap, but here's what I know: — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:07, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

  • EDIT IS AVAILABLE : For me it existed in the following versions Win3.1, Win95, WinNT
  • (noticeable gap between windows versions)
  • EDIT ISNT AVAILABLE: It's not part of Windows 10
What versions between WinNT and Windows10 did it work on, and why was it removed?  — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:06, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

{06 Oct 2017 19:00hrs} to {07 Oct 2017 00:05hrs} All EDST. by my uses of following system.

Please up date your list with information here and below. I personally love OS/2 version 3 Warp and PC-DOS 7.2 on a DX486 I'm register own of both with IBM. Window 98 on a 80686 with IBM Glass-ton chip set. I also owned two 80286/287 units had call to OS/2 v1.2 more like menu program, little Graphics as applications, that I bought at a junk yard repair there power supplies and used them and register with IBM PC-DOS 5.5 which was on both machines over the phone and later internet phone, until I bought a new DX486 desk top unit running PC-DOS 5.5 over it Windows95 OS-R2 then then loaded OS/2v3{Warp} .

and owned many x686 up ward sense. Windows3.0--3.1 Windows(OS-R2) Windows98 windows Millennium but it's DOS command prompt was not real DOS no "ed" no "e” and only having these edit.exe for command prompt or\and call-able to start windows' "notepad.exe" as a windows GUI.
I guess, you all were not born yet well as far back as maybe DX486 unit. Unix and ADA was in the U.S. Army 1976 through 1984. My Jr-yr "LSAT "Electronics Design" "Applied" Both as "Analog" and "Digital" 2nd best in Tennessee and nationally 2nd my bench partner got 1st in both he was killed with his whole family; very near Christmas day after the Exam posted. They were in West Tennessee that Christmas hollow Days. We all of our mates were informed of that when we had gotten back to school. These are all verifiable. All those below are self citations within there respective help and or document files, except where stated below. But that ED is documented in it;s help files under C/PM, which works in the very same way in my office c/pM on a Xerox computer, when I was a Motor-Sargent in US Army. Oh I think the first DOS OS was written on c/pM computer, check with Micro Soft whom did buy a DOS from the writer of DOS, I do Remember reading that it was bought for $65000.00 after IBM requested a PC-OS from Micro Soft they bought it after finding that their dead line was about come into effect.

Title: List of text editors From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

subtitle: Graphical user interface [edit]

Item of list: e made GUI in OS/2‘s called PC-7.2 and it's own GUI while under DOS note: that I am still reg owner of and user back then. I found it when writing boot copy batch file and config.sys for fix-it disk, FOR A FREIND whom need to copy Windows reg file for later uses. It was by mistake I did not hit the second letter of the hidden editor named "ed" which was apart of every real DOS like MSDOS PCDOS

                                   and MDOS under OS/2 version:3 Warp like this simple command prompt

line as follows C:\> ED <Enter> but instead I did C:\> e<Enter> { See "ed" below too. } subtitle: Text user interface[edit] System default[edit]

Item of list: e or E not On Real DOS version 3.3 PC DOS later until around

5.5 6.0

Item of list: ed or ED depending as to which; REAL DOS OS you were using, is a hidden editor for writing .bat .sys files. I've never seen so much as a comment about "ED or ed" in any documents for any DOS OS but I have read every one around either. But sadly to say that MS Windows version 7.0 also had EDIT then and later afterward no longer had ed in it. Also Windows NT command prompt did not have "ed or ED" it only had "EDIT" but as "edit" either except when it is loaded over a real DOS OS then like magic you got "ed" Example of DOS:

C:\> ed autoexec.bat /* makes Autoexec.bat file overwrites if one exists. */

C:\> ED config.sys /* makes config.sys file overwrites if one exists. */

C:\> ed >>autoexec.bat /* append to one if it exists otherwise complains */

C:\> ed >>config.sys /* same is also true for config.sys file too. */

C:\MYFILES> ed mynotes.txt or c:\> ed >>c:\myfiles\mynotes.txt /* creates or appends. the prompt is the astric " * " as follows: */

  • I just found this very simple editor called "ed" it let you write for the
  • length command prompt later versions let write around the corner just like
  • this doing but the only the length of the command buffer which almost
  • always was 127 chars long later one even Ctrl+/r return as
  • the 128th char. When you were finished you and hold the "<Ctrl>+ " tap
  • the <C> as a keycord completed ed finishes as always do end with<Enter key>
  • <Ctrl>+<C> /* On an empty line terminates the file and writes it */

C:\> canceled or ended by user /* some earlier DOSes did this report or complaint as your view point. */ /* Most DOSes did not report on the finish of ed

  and OS/2 version 3 Warp never did. */

/* I am almost eighty year old started computing uses in the early 1970's.*/ /* These are all facts true hole and complete. */

 /* Causes to write or to write this file show seamlessly append to it. */

/* "EDIT" was a command editor for Windows95 DOS 7.0 with upgrade win3.1 no DOS the upgrade askes for for the disk of windows 3.1 and then loads. Also I learned from Windoews95 help files program. */ Hope not to over write any one's work but here is the info all of it verifiable,Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). either "IBM" or "MS" registeries.

List inclusion[edit]

I have added a brief hidden note to clarify Wikipedia's inclusion criteria for large lists, with one common sense exception: imo default editors of notable operating systems and computers can be assumed to be relevant enough for inclusion even without stand-alone articles (although such entries should ideally have an independent source).
