Software News   Software News : CygnusED available as a download version
   posted by AndreasM on 30-May-2013 11:10:49 (4327 reads)
Since today CygnusED 5 is available in the online shop of APC & TCP at a discounted price. Of course CygnusED will continue as usual to be available on CD.

CygnusED is the most famous text editor for the Amiga.

The program was developed 25 years ago (1986/1987) by Bruce Dawson, Colin Fox & Steve LaRocque (CygnusSoft software) and originally appeared as a self-distribution.

Olaf Barthel developed the program continuously and for some time the version 5 is available.

Obtain detailed information on their support page at the URL

But not only CygnusED is now available as a download version. Other products from APC & TCP such as Roadshow, Data Workbench, Gunbee, Marblelous and others are also available as a download version.

Furthermore, PDFs of sellout Amiga Future issues are available from the online shop.

Will we ever see syntax highlighting ? I partially moved to CubicIDE but this editor still rules in my view, in fact I'd probably start using it again if it had syntax highlighting and folding.

allready bought it many moons ago but i stopped using it due to there being other "better" programs now as i needed syntax /highlighting editing and so on but i would happily return fully to CED if it got that single feature i need as it is still the best eitor out there.

My programs are gigantic so I need folding/unfolding more than anything.

I have been asking for folding for many years but Olaf is under the mistaken impression that his family is more important than me

Syntax hilighting in 2013 would be nice to. Make sure the syntax is configurable as my syntax is different from yours. CubicIDE has a very fancy configurable syntax and configurable folding/unfolding.

If Cubic worked just like CygnusED + Folding + syntax hilighting then I would use only Cubic. As it stands I like the "general" way that Cygnus Ed works better (+ old habits are hard to break) so I keep using CygnusEd.

Wanna try a wonderfull magical Amiga strategy game?
