New Qedit 4.4 for HP-UX

Surrey, B.C., Canada -- November 1, 1995 -- Robelle announces the newest version of Qedit for HP-UX. Qedit/UX is modeled on Robelle's popular Qedit for MPE, the fast, flexible, full-screen editor. With Qedit/UX version 4.4, Robelle offers a Browse mode to protect files from unplanned changes, as well as greater flexibility when editing several files at the same time. In addition, these enhancements are compatible with the latest upgrade of HP-UX 10.0.

Known already for its great flexibility and power, Qedit now makes it easier to work with several files at once. The New command creates an extra 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 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 Qedit enhancements are compatible with HP-UX 10.0. As a member of Hewlett-Packard's VAB Prep Program, Robelle has access to the most recent upgrades to HP-UX. This allows Robelle to keep Qedit/UX up-to-date with all the latest changes to the operating system.

Qedit/UX offers all the speed and flexibility that users of Qedit for MPE have come to enjoy. The user can stay in Qedit all day to run programs, execute shell commands (Qedit knows which shell the user prefers), and shell scripts. In addition to its full-screen mode with cut-and-paste, Qedit also has a powerful command mode for editing files interactively or in shell scripts.

Robelle is a leading developer of software tools for Hewlett-Packard minicomputers and workstations. Robelle products include the Qedit editor, Qedit/UX, the Suprtool database handyman, and the new Suprtool/UX.
