Welcome to KEDIT for Windows!
This booklet has information for
users of KEDIT for DOS and KEDIT for OS/2 who are moving to KEDIT
for Windows. If you are a first-time user of KEDIT, you can skip
this booklet and start with the KEDIT for Windows User's Guide., and we strongly recommend that
you look through this chapter before using KEDIT for Windows. It has
important information about the differences between text mode KEDIT
and KEDIT for Windows, and it has answers to the vast majority of
the questions that you are likely to have as you get started with
KEDIT for Windows.
Note that, like all previous versions of KEDIT, KEDIT for Windows is still a
text editor. KEDIT for Windows does not handle binary files, graphics files, OLE
compound documents, or documents with multiple fonts on a page. As a text
editor, KEDIT works with files that consist of lines of text, where each line
ends with a carriage return and/or a linefeed character.
KEDIT assumes that the files you are editing are encoded using the ANSI or OEM
character sets; most text files on Windows have historically used the ANSI
character set. Note that KEDIT does not support Unicode, a newer format that is
beginning to come into wider use.
KEDIT 3.53 and earlier
This booklet describes the changes that a user of KEDIT 4.0 or KEDIT
5.0 will notice when moving to KEDIT for Windows. It does not focus
on versions of KEDIT that came out before the 1988 release of KEDIT
Most commands and features from KEDIT 3.53 and earlier are still available
in KEDIT for Windows. The biggest difference is in the macro facility,
which changed significantly between KEDIT 3.53 and KEDIT 4.0, requiring
KEDIT 3.53 profiles and key definitions to be rewritten. Most users
of KEDIT 3.53 have relatively simple profiles and can simply start
fresh with KEDIT for Windows. If you have extensive KEDIT 3.53 macros
you can contact us for a copy of the KCONVERT program, which helps
convert KEDIT 3.53 profiles and key definitions to the new format.
