|Text editor: Amiga Source Editor 1.2 (2019)|
The "Amiga Source Editor" (ASE) is a text editor written by Alain Fontanin. He started to develop it in 1989 but stopped it in 1991. When Fontanin watched the documentary "Viva Amiga" last year, he was reminded "of this beautiful time". Since he no longer develops anything on Mac, he decided to "carry out this personal project and redevelop ASE".
Unfortunately he could not find any of the source codes except the "linked list manager (GLC) which had been published in 1991 in "le Petit Amiga Illustré". Additional to the source codes, he also lost the ASE distribution disks which he is looking for. They were distributed in France at Free Distribution SoftWare (FDS) with the number SH 1064. If anyone finds or has it please write the author.
ASE is a "multi-document" text editor: "You can open as many documents as your activity requires or your machine allows (especially in terms of memory and CPU power). The theoretical limit of the number of lines per document is 4.2 billion! The theoretical limit of the number of characters per line is 4.2 billion! ASE2019 has 1 level 'undo' function and Select / Copy / Cut / Paste editing functions." According to the author the editor runs on Amigas equipped with Kickstart zwischen 2.04 until 3.1, higher versions he could not test under FS-UAE. But we can confirm that ASE2019 also runs fine under OS3.9 (dr) (Translation: dr)
