Any DOS text editor for nonstandard screen widths ? (Users)

posted by Ninho(R) E-mail, 29.04.2009, 13:28

Guys ! Since I was able to add nice looking wide screen text modes (132,148,160 columns) on my poor SiS based board, I'm now looking for a good text editor (Buerg's "list" is OK but for viewing only; Microsoft's "edit" adapts to non standrad number of lines but crashes miserably on anything other than 40/80 chars wide !)

Requirement : editor must adapt itself to any screen size it finds on entry (as described in the BIOS data area). Additional niceties : should be able to show 2 files side by side, allowing one or the other to be scrolled independently (a la Buerg's).

Is there such a beast available (free being a very nice plus) - or would we (I) have to write one ?
