    T.H.E. is an open-source editor based on IBM's XEDIT and the PC KEDIT. There is a port of the editor to OS X, but I'm unable to find it.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    No OS X port that I can see

    Thanks for your reply. I looked at that entry before posting here.

    Unless I'm blind (not yet), there is no listing for the OS X port of THE.

    Thanks for your reply

    Too much effort and knowledge for me, I'm afraid. I may run
    Windows virtualized to use KEDIT.

    An off-topic question: the user level listed in your reply reads

    "macrumors 6502" I've noticed other users have "6800" or "68000" etc.

    They all look like microprocessor chip names. True? Why?

    Thanks again.

    Oh yeah, the FAQ

    Thanks. I should have looked there first.

    A pretty esoteric naming convention, I must admit.

    So the Intel chips won't make it into the pantheon?
    (probably too late for that.)

    Thanks again,

    There will be alternatives, but I guess if you have spent a lot of time learning KEDIT and spend most of your time actually bashing away at the keyboard its probably not worth it.

    KEDIT on Windows in a virtualizer for now

    I have a bunch of fairly complex macros in KEXX (KEDIT subset of REXX) to make life easier. And as a friend has remarked, after a while the keystrokes come from the lower spinal cord, bypassing the brain.

    So until my hallucination returns (i.e., the link to the OS X port reappears), my choices seem limited.

    Thanks for the feedback, rm.
