PrEditor just got prettier

Edit in Living Colour

TOKYO, JAPAN -- 3 August 2003 -- Thistle Software announce version 2, a major new release of their programmer's editor. PrEditor is a programming language neutral, highly configurable, professional editor that allows you to edit files for a variety of completely different programming languages in a powerful and consistent way.

Version 2 represents a complete rewrite of v1.x - it does things way better now, it is more configurable, with dynamic menus, improved keyboard configuration and macro support, and is even skinable - a fun thing that you don't often see with today's so called programmer's editors. You'll love it!

PrEditor enables programmers to do things like write a Perl script, update an SQL stored procedure, modify a C++ class, write a shell script, write an assembler routine, and even update an application configuration file -- all with the same consistent, syntax coloured, user interface. It does it all comfortably across different machines using FTP, transparently loading and saving UNIX, DOS, and MAC format files.

The tag line Edit in Living Colour, is certainly deserved - with PrEditor's proven syntax-colouring, it really improves the readability and helps you understand program code better.`

PrEditor has all the usual features that you would expect from a professional editor: unlimited file size, line length, undo/redo, plus a customisability that would gratify the pickiest of programmers. More information is available on PrEditor's web page at
