Thanks Bill and John,

I will look at all editors again to see what's changed during decade when I last time scanned all editors. Very important feature I need is to show matching IF/ELSE/ENDIF and matching DO/ENDDO. Just highlighting them is not enough, often there are 100s of Dos and ENDDOs to find where the hell are their heads and ends.

Another feature is to edit both Windows and LINUX/UNIX files without distorting UNIX files with WINDOWs style CR/LF.

Of course dual side by side windows view is a must when you simultaneously can edit two files.

I must is a pasteboard which automatically collects everything you saved before into clipboard.

EditPad can handle both Windows and Linux style line terminations with ease! You can select which one you wish and have the preference saved for a specific file-extent if you wish. Since the "Light" version is free, you might give it a go! I love it! Does not do the Do/ENDDO, though. It's not that context sensitive!

At the moment Plato does not show matching DO/ENDDO etc. but it does the other things including Copy/Paste, Spike (adding to the clipboard) and a clipboard ring that remembers the last 16 clips (Alt+V).

Notepad on Windows 10 now finally recognises both Windows and Linux/Unix style line terminations. It has been so annoying that this simple update took so long to be done. Unfortunately, I tried to copy notepad.exe from Win 10 to Win 8 but it did not work. It is a very simple and useful program and have found it so annoying when scanning Linux text file.

Also, have you seen the preview panel on Win 10 Explorer ? This can also be a useful additional feature, that I only recently found. (Has it been there for years ?)

Very useful indeed.

On the grounds that most Linux and Mac users are pretentious (include appropriate plural noun here), I have to be paid a lot to have anything to do with their outputs!

I use a nice little editor called PFE32 developed by a bloke at Lancaster University. Development of this little utility stopped 20 years ago, so it has a dated look and feel. Perhaps the best bit for me is the default font it uses - no, wait a minute, the 2 best bits are the font and the DOS window, or maybe 3 ...

I tried various text editors, and haven't found anything that suits me better.
