txt editor
hey guys is there any program that will let you acess and edit txt in the hammer icon on some amiga diskes been looking for ages no joy still

Not sure what you're looking for here. Do you have a text file with a hammer icon in Workbench that you want to edit? There are already text editors included with Workbench that can edit files like that. Try opening ed (select "Execute Command..." from the Workbench menu, type ed and press enter) and using the right-click menu to open the file you want to edit.

ed file is that on extras disk mate

No, it should be on the Workbench disk, in the C directory.

Actually, thinking about it, it might be that Ed needs an argument of a filename to open. So you can just use a temporary file, for example:

Ed RAM:dummy

And then use the menus to open whatever file you liked.

Get CygnusEd. It's all you need.

If you expect double-click to open editor, it might not work unless you have DirOpus/Filemaster/Diskmaster and have set it up so the Edit button will open the text editor you prefer. You can also get just the text editor and open the file on the disk from there without a file manager utility.
