Is this you?

    • Looking for a line-oriented ISPF style editor because Windows character-mode text editors just don't do it for you?
    • Been a loyal Tritus SPF or SPF/PC user and feel 'left behind' now that they're gone?
    • Miss ISPF features like Exclude, Overlay, Bounds, Sort, Hex mode, etc.?
    • Like to tweak and customize your edit environment?
    • Want support for special file formats, like EBCDIC, RECFM=V or RECFM=F, and Unicode?
    • A Hercules mainframe emulator user who wants to SUBMIT jobs and have a practical SYSOUT browser?
    • Want power-user features other editors don't have?  Even ISPF?

Well, maybe you've found the solution: SPFLite


It does not support the full Dialog Management structure that ISPF/PDF does, but as a programmers text editor it not only compares well with ISPF, it exceeds it in many areas, with new and powerful functions.. As well it is extremely flexible and customizable with full keyboard mapping, keyboard macros, and a full macro language to allow creation of new Primary and Line commands. SPFLite has been continually developed and enhanced far beyond its humble beginnings.  Whether you have an SPF/ISPF background or not, you should find SPFLite to be a powerful and useful editing facility.



Please try it out and let us know what you think.  Regardless of whether you end up using it, or whether you register or not, we welcome all your comments, good and bad.  The best place to leave your comments is on the SPFLite Forum.
