Moving from HP 3000 to HP-UX?"I absolutely LOVE QEDIT! It is helping to make the move off the HP 3000 at least bearable. I could never have lived with vi."
Rex Dickey, IT Director
Columbia Steel Casting Co., Inc.
"We installed and have Qedit running on our HP 9000. I think our motto has changed from 'VI is my
friend' to 'Qedit is my friend!'. The installation was quick and easy as advertised. I'm fairly
certain after only 1 day that we'll purchase this product. Thanks again for the demo."
Why buy Qedit?"Vi is free; why not use it?" Let's face it, the world is changing rapidly. New operating system releases every few months, changes to networking and data communications, new terminals and terminal emulators - it never stops. If you have the time to become a vi expert, fine.
If not, you can have the familiar, dependable Qedit.
I look forward to going to work every day so that I can use Qedit. It makes me 4 to 5 times more productive.
If you want the peace of mind that comes from knowing a dedicated team of programmers and support people stand behind the editor you use all day, then Qedit is for you.
At Robelle we never stop working on Qedit. Even as you read this, we are already working on next year's release by incorporating the many features and ideas that Qedit's thousands of demanding users have requested.
"Qedit is wonderful. I live in it all the time. At home, I have three of my terminal function keys defined as 'dial the office', 'hello', and 'run Qedit'."
Qedit is easy to learn and comes with complete documentation: an easy-to-read user manual (in PDF and HtmlHelp format) plus full-text on-line Help within Qedit itself.
Our design goals of reliability, compatibility, performance, and functionality make Qedit the obvious choice.
"Qedit for HP-UX has been indispensable in our migration from the HP 3000 to HP 9000."
Use the full-screen mode of Qedit to develop and modify your source code. Editing is a breeze when you take advantage of Qedit's full-screen capabilities - look at your source code a page at a time; use the function keys and the command line to navigate through your file, and apply cut-and-paste functions to single lines or blocks of lines. The cut-and-paste functions allow you to move, copy, insert, and delete selections of text plus split and splice lines, format text, and more. You can even apply cut-and-paste operations across files.
"I have been using Qedit extensively to automate repetitive programming tasks using Qedit's command file feature. In particular, Qedit command files have been defined which greatly reduced the amount of time it took the Hospital to do its Year 2000 compliance programming. Qedit has significantly improved batch performance and increased programmer productivity."
George De Wolf, Middlesex Hospital
"Not only do we use Qedit/UX to edit scripts and program files, but we also use it for all kinds of data migration tasks. For example, we download data from an AS/400 machine, then use Qedit/UX to reformat the data for the HP 9000. Qedit greatly simplifies these kind of tasks"
