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.
