Prints the current marked block of text.
This command will ask the user for a string and search for
that string from the cursor location to the end of the file.
After the string is typed in, you will be asked for any special
options you would like. They are listed below:
B: Will cause a search backwards through the file.
I: Will treat upper and lower case letters as equal.
G: Causes a global search through the file.
C# #: Causes a search on the column of text specified
by # #, the first number specifies the first character
of the column, the second number specifies the with
of the column.
These options may be combined by simply typing in a
combination of them on the same line. For example, typing in
"BI" will cause a backward search though the file treating upper
and lower case characters as equal. While searching, the word
"SEARCH" will be placed on top of the "Indent" location.
Find & Replace String
This command will search for a string specified by the
user, and will replace the string with another string specified
by the user. All options that apply to the "Find String"
command also applies to this command. Another option is also
available for this command.

S: This chooses the silent mode. Normally when you tell
the computer to find and replace strings without asking
you to verify each substitution, you will be able to see
each substitution flash on the screen. With this option
you will not see each substitution flash on the screen,
but the operation will take place much faster.
This option may also be combined with other options defined
Repeat Last Find
Repeats last "Find String" or "Find & Replace String",
whichever one was chosen last.
Start/Stop Recording Macro
By pressing the key the computer will record every key
that you press on the keyboard until the key is pressed
again. Then the (Playback Macro) key may be pressed to
play back the sequence of keystrokes that you just recorded.
This is useful for making tedious typing easy. While recording,
the word "RECORD" will be placed on top of the "Indent"
location. A maximum or 500 keystrokes may be recorded at one
time. After that, the recording will automatically be turned
off. All function, arrow, control, and alternate keys use two
Plays back a sequence of keystrokes defined by the
"Start/Stop Recording Macro" command.
Causes the computer to be returned to DOS (disk operating
system) keeping the editor intact in memory. When the command
"EXIT" is typed at the DOS prompt, you will be returned to the
editor exactly the way that you had left it.
Allows you to define commands to DOS that may be executed
with the <0-9> keys. This may be useful for commands that
are issued frequently to DOS, like perhaps the command to
compile a program that you are editing.
