ADAMED 40 column text editor

Post by Wmaalouli » Sat Jul 20, 2019 6:32 pm

ADAMED is a replacement for the miserable ED editor that comes standard with CP/M. It's a full-screen 40-column editor written entirely in 8080 assembly language, with the most common text editing features needed for programming in either assembly language or higher level languages such as Pascal.

It's primarily targeted at CP/M users wanting to program directly on the Adam computer. It's probably just me, but hey I had a blast programming it! :D

UPDATE 8/20/19: This latest version corrects a nasty bug in saving files greater than 128 records. Also fixed compatibility with the Turbo Pascal editor.

This is Adam specific as it uses the VDP text mode and the Adam keyboard key bindings.

The screen gets corrupted in Tdos. Only works with CP/M 2.2

Updated Adamed in the first post (again). I apparently broke compatibility with the Turbo Pascal editor accidentally when I fixed the large file saving issue. Fixed that. Hopefully, this should be it for the editor (famous last words :D )

Would you be interested in converting this to use an 80 column card?

I'm not sure it would be worth the effort given that 80 column cards are not prevalent. Also since this is CP/M based, it would require a patched CP/M version for 80 column as well. As far as I can tell, there is very little development occurring under CP/M currently, if any at all.
Furthermore, the conversion would not be trivial at all.
So the short answer is probably not :)

An 80 column card would be quite economical. $30? I think if they were made, they would be quite... "prevalent" ;)

Hello!

Any idea what would be the cause of screen corruption like this when launching adamed? I did use the config tool to change my colors to cyan on black but even before I updated the config I still had this issue.
