Text editor that can edit long lines?

I am looking for a text editor that can edit long lines and that can run when I boot without Startup-Sequence on my A4000T.

"ed" can not edit long lines so it corrupts my blizkick line.
"editpad" can not start when I boot without Startup-Sequence.

CygnusED 4

Been using for years, supports long lines and works like a clock.

Is there not a way of altering Ed's configuration to set the maximum length? I remember Ed being very configurable - try looking in S:Ed-Startup, or even renaming Ed-Startup to something else in order to enable the full set of menus. I'm sure there's a setting for the right margin...

Yep, there is a command in the extra Settings menu that only appears if you enable it or rename the startup file. You can access it with Esc, S, R and that will let you enter the number of characters to put the right margin at.

Customising Ed

Ed, unfortunately, has a fixed limit of 255 characters per line that is compiled into the code, and the memory for that is not even allocated, but taken from the bss segment of the command, thus just patching would overwrite other internal variables. Thus, there is no way to extend this except to recompile it. But other options exist. CED works fine even without a startup-sequence. (Ed is a dinosaur anyhow, better put it to rest).

Ah, that's interesting... I thought you were running into the standard 80 character limit. That's an impressive Blizkick entry!

It's pretty standard actually

It's like this at the moment. I have also added 6 more modules for usb mouse connected to rapidroad to work after blizkick reboots. Removed morelibspace.module since I can not run afaos properly at the moment.

Yep, that's a lot of stuff, compared to mine anyway. Never thought of all the extra USB stuff...

I had the same trouble wiht ED when edit S-S that had a long line (I guess it was RemAPollo line). Also ED is a really pain. So its better to avoid it.
If you want a small/faster/simpler editor then CygnusED I can recommend JanoEditor if you have at least OS3.0. For script editing like S-S/U-S its perfect IMHO.

CygnusEd has a fixed limit, too. IIRC it was 1024 characters in earlier releases. Now (version 5) it is 32000 characters.

There is Redit (http://aminet.net/package/text/edit/Redit) and TextEngine (http://aminet.net/package/text/edit/TextEngine). Redit is fine to use when you boot without Startup-Sequence and works with Kickstart 1.3, too (but it needs a 8192 KB stack to run properly). TextEngine can be used also for this purpose, but it is bigger, and need two other files on the same directory. Redit does not need any file (except the one you will want to edit. ).

Hope I can be of any help.

Redit is what you need. The readme is in german only. But is says there is no restriction in filesize or number of chars per line.
Just copy it to c: and rename it to ED. Works fine with no S-S.
As Leandro allready wrote, you need 8192 bytes stack.

Emacs is a classic one, but pain in the ass typing the editable file path and name manually every time.
