New Qedit 4.4 for MPE

Surrey, B.C., Canada -- November 1, 1995 -- Robelle announces the release of a new version of Qedit, the powerful full-screen editor for HP 3000 computers. Qedit version 4.4 offers Browse mode to protect files from unplanned changes, as well as greater flexibility in editing several files at the same time. In addition, all these features are compatible with the latest upgrades to MPE/iX 5.0.

Known already for its great flexibility and power, Qedit now makes it easier to work with several files at once. The New command creates a scratch file. Verify Open shows the names of the nine most recently opened files. A simple Open *-1, *-2, and so on, immediately opens the chosen file; when used at the full-screen command line, this command immediately displays the file's current screen.

To protect files from unplanned changes, Qedit now offers Browse mode. As its name implies, Browse mode allows the user to look into files but does not allow modifications, and does not update the file's modification date.

All these enhancements to Qedit version 4.4 are compatible with the latest changes to MPE/iX 5.0. As part of Hewlett-Packard's VAB Prep Program, Robelle has access to pre-release versions of MPE/iX. This allows Robelle to keep Qedit up-to-date with all the operating system changes.

Robelle products include the Qedit editor, Qedit/UX, the Suprtool database handyman, and the new Suprtool/UX.
