Many of our members have programmed their own editor. Recently I got seriously p*ssed of because when I typed e.g. myDword in the find box, the listbox said "no matches". So I had to click on "Case" to make the search case-insensitive.

One click too much for my taste, so I opened the source and fixed the problem (solution: if there are no matches, I relaunch the find in case-insensitive mode, pick the first match, correct the find box to MyDword and relaunch in case-sensitive mode). So from now on, I'll find matches for wm_command even if the search mode is case-sensitive.

Of course, it took me some time to dig through code that I hadn't touched for years, but the joy of making that beast obey to my wishes was worth every minute I spent on this :tongue:

Below a screenshot (taken a few minutes ago) of my very first editor, written over 30 years ago. It had permanent bookmarks (I couldn't live without, I even had them in MS Word), a sophisticated listbox showing search matches, embedded graphics, and even a plot function. The screen and printer drivers were mine, programmed in 68000 Assembly. The less demanding parts I wrote in GfaBasic. I wrote and printed a whole book with this editor, and a renowned publisher took the photocopies "as is" to publish the book.

Ambar monitor?

By far the best black and white monitor of the 1990ies. My screenshot is taken from the Steem emulator, though.

Ich spreche kein deutsch :tongue:  "I don't speak German"
I've failed my German language tutoring by our neighbor Mrs. Kuckla (when I was a tot). But google I think does a fair job.

Btw where is your SimpleEd? Did you post it somewhere?

Another one that is the base code for one of my plugin builder (for qeditor) programs, and a coupla two or three more editors that are less noteworthy unless I've already sent them to the circular file
