BOXER is a remarkably full-featured text editor which has quickly become
the favorite of all types of computer users: programmers and writers --
power users and novices. BOXER is the result of an 8-year effort by a
self-proclaimed perfectionist, and the outcome is a highly polished
software program. Attention to detail is apparent throughout: BOXER's
interface is smooth, intuitive and courteous. Designed with an emphasis
on flexibility, BOXER can be easily configured to suit most every user's
taste. New users consistently praise BOXER in the strongest terms.
A complete feature list would be huge, so here are some of BOXER's most
important capabilities: multi-level Undo and Redo, Color Syntax
Highlighting, multiple files and windows, full mouse support, keyboard
reconfiguration, support for extended screen sizes, column marking,
macros, color, pull-down menus, word processing, and context sensitive
online help. Also: search with wildcards, compile within the editor,
small footprint shell, graphic drawing mode, auto indent, find mating
parenthetical characters, block commands: cut, copy, append, paste,
delete, write, print, fill, sort, total, average, case convert, invert,
entab, detab, more! Shareware from David R. Hamel $89.
** BOXER 7.0 adds over 85 new features and options! **
New: select macros from a new Macro List interface for playback,
recording or erasure. Up to 100 macros can now be loaded simulatan-
eously. Search and Replace will restrict its attention to matches
within a column-marked region when marking is active. Up to 20 text
anchor positions can now be recorded and manipulated from a pop-up
anchor list. The Paragraph Reformat command will reformat all those
lines contained within a marked region, if run while text is marked.
Column-marked areas can now be FILL-ed with a string of characters,
rather than just a single character. And much, much more!
