Software News   Software News : The new CygnusED webpage is online
   posted by AndreasM on 24-Jan-2013 9:13:01 (2149 reads)
The CygnusED Webpage is online via a new URL - http://www.cygnused.de

CygnusED is currently produced by Olaf Barthel and is one of the most popular text editors for the Amiga.

Albeit slowly, the development of the program is still continuing.

We'd like to get your opinion & thoughts as to what features you'd wish for future versions of CygnusEd.

Read more...


Please let us know your ideas by writing to us in the support forum of CygnusEd's new webpages so that we can consider supporting them for the program's future releases.

Incidentally, a few days ago the FULL VERSION of the TCP/IP stack ROADSHOW was published which is also developed by Olaf Barthel.

On MorphOS it would compete with Scribble, which has not only syntax highlighting, but also calltips, displaying structure members and function arguments. Plus dynamic code parsing. On the other hand CED has comfortable macros with recording.

1st on the list for me would be syntax highlighting. Display of structure members would be awesome of course. I got Cubic IDE wich is fantastic but I was so used to Cygnus ED that I still keep using it on the few times I try to code on my Amigas :)

Need folding/unfolding.

The other requested features in this thread sound nice too.

As far as I recall, I think Olaf has previously said that syntax highlighting would require a complete rewrite of CygnusEd, so I have my doubts it'd get done.

CygnusEd does things which virtually no other (Amiga) text editor does:
* It can have multiple views of the same file, which I use heavily. (FrexxEd may also allow it, but I think it is buggy & unsupported.)
* It can load, edit & save a binary file without corrupting the file (I don't use this feature much, but it does sometimes save having to get a hex-editor out).

It's also has lots of other nice (but not necessarily unique) attributes, like:
* A powerful search/replace dialog - you can even search/replace multiple lines in one go (I use this all the time for manipulating code).
* Heavily customisable so I can make it behave exactly how I want (say for editing code).
* Automatic loading of settings based upon the type of file you loaded.
* A fairly powerful ARexx interface (and ARexx programs can be bound to F-keys).
* Easy macros (which I've occasionally found handy for saving repetitive jobs).
* Easily change the foreground & background colours (I like white text on a black background).
* Can load/save Amiga/PC/Mac text files (and convert them if you wish).

On the downside the menu structure takes some getting used to, and could probably do with a complete rewrite (preferably making it customisable, so that fans of the old menus can still have it like that).

I suggest that author shouldn't interfere in such level into code because the power of CygnusED is superb speed on Amiga classic, smooth scrolling and great stability. I like this program because of that.

Good programs can be simple aswell, no syntax highlighting is required nor any other fireworks that sometimes make program less stable. CygnusED has the renome of best Amiga text-processor as well as all features needed for good text-processor.

I've recently come across an editor called "sublime text 2" and it's extremely slick and well polished. The Mac version I have even ships with an Amiga color scheme :)

Seriously worth looking at for ideas.

@ChrisH

Good post!

Gave me insight what CygnusED offers that others might not.
