So, here we finally have the basic ACE version of the ZED text editor that I
have been promising for a very long time. The new version doesn't contain
all of the features of the standalone version, but I am working on it. The
new version does, however, include a few features that the old version does
not, like long lines, horizontal scrolling, text "sloshing", the ability to
use additional memory types for storage, the ability to work on the C64,
integration with a command-line environment, and full assembler-code
availability (Real Soon Now(TM)).
In order to make ZED operational as a word processor, some means of giving
embedded commands and for formatting and printing these commands must be
provided. I was originally thinking that an EasyScript or SpeedScript kind
of embedded-command structure, and then I was thinking abouta LaTeX kind of
structure (the LaTeX structure is superior), but I am now thinking that an
HTML type of format-command structure might be rather apropos. Why then I
would need to create a print formatter and previewer that might be usable
for other purposes, too.
Back to Beginning.
