Asunto: DOS/Win3.X Text Editors - Q Edit 2.1

From: SP <>
Date: Thu Feb 10 04:02:50 2005

I used Qedit (from 2.1 to 2.4), and still use it in DOS OS. But not under
WIndoze DOS, because Qedit manages only filenames of 8+3, and convert the
long names of the files to 8+3.

I use actually Editplus, who permit many features similar to Qedit, included
the cut and paste of blocks or colummns. A good product.
