The SemWare Editor Junior (TSE Jr.) - version 4.0
Copyright 1985 - 1995 SemWare Corporation.
All rights reserved worldwide.

QEdit(R) has adopted a new name, The SemWare(R) Editor Junior (TSE Jr.). As
you begin to explore this new version, you will discover that it is still the
same editor that you have always known. In this version, there have been
dozens of features added which bring the familiar QEdit more in line with its
sister product - and now its namesake - The SemWare Editor Professional (TSE




This version of TSE Jr. is NOT public domain or free software, but is being
distributed as "shareware" for EVALUATION PURPOSES ONLY.

SemWare grants a limited license to individuals to use this shareware
software for a 30-day evaluation period on a private, non-commercial basis,
for the express purpose of determining whether TSE Jr. is suitable for their
needs. At the end of this 30-day evaluation period, the individual must
either purchase a license from SemWare for continued use of the program, or
discontinue using TSE Jr.

Many hours of work have gone into the development of TSE Jr - over 11
work-years, as of this version - and that does not include all the time spent
on our users guide/reference manual. In addition, we provide full-time
support, via phone during normal business hours, or mail, fax, or BBS if you

TSE Jr. is a professionally developed, packaged, and supported product. Our
product has received excellent reviews, and our manual and product support

are highly regarded by our licensed users. We offer discounts on updates to
our registered users, and we regularly incorporate suggested changes into the
product as we are able.

The only way we can continue to provide products like TSE Jr. and to offer
outstanding technical support, is to stay in business; and the only way we
can stay in business is for those who use TSE Jr. to purchase a license for
it. We like the shareware concept and would like to stay a part of it. But we
can do so only through paid licenses for TSE Jr. Please don't take this the
wrong way - you may try TSE Jr. for 30 days (subject to the conditions and
restrictions stated in TSEJR.DOC), under no obligation to pay to use it
during that time. However, if you continue to use it after that 30-day
evaluation period, you must purchase a license to do so. THANKS!

Important Notes

Multi-line macros are supported by QCONFIG, in the QCONFIG.DAT file. Also,
the MacroBegin statement is optional. Because of these additional
features, a couple of rules must be followed:

- Key assignments must begin in column 1.

- Lines two and greater of a multi-line macro must start in column 2 or

- Text starting in column 1 (other than a comment) is assumed to be the
start of a key assignment.

To take advantage of the commands assigned to the enhanced keyboard keys
(^CursorUp, ^CursorDown, f11, f12, etc), the A)dvanced configuration
option, "Test for presence of enhanced keyboard" must be set to "Y" by the
QCONFIG program.

New Features in TSE Jr. 4.0

Integrated Mouse Support

Mouse support is now built-in, so QM.COM is no longer needed.

QConfig: (under Advanced Options)

Enable mouse processing (Y/N)? [Y] : Y
You must have a mouse driver loaded to use the mouse. (This option is
not necessary with the OS/2 version)

Left-handed mouse (Y/N)? [N] : N
Swaps the outside buttons on the mouse.

Mouse hold time (in 1/18th sec) [1..36] [9] : 9
This is the number of clock-ticks (1/18th of a second) in which the
mouse button must be down to be considered "HELD".

Mouse repeat-delay factor [0..32767] [600] : 600
This is a machine dependent value that can be adjusted to speed up or
slow down the repeat rate of the mouse buttons.

NOTE: You must also set the "Display Boxed" option (under Colors/screen)
to TRUE, to enable scroll-bars on the editing windows.

Left-Click on top line of the screen invokes the MainMenu

In text area of current window:
Double-Left-Click marks the word
Triple-Left-Click marks the line
Click-Drag mouse to mark character block
Hold Alt-key while click-drag to mark a line block
Hold Ctrl-key while click-drag to mark a column block
Right-Click invokes the "Mouse Menu"

Resize windows by click-drag on StatusLine.

Pops up a menu of Block-related commands. This command provides access to
a list of Block-related commands for easy selection using a mouse. If the
mouse is not used, this menu can still be accessed by pressing .

The commands available are:

Mouse Menu
Paste Over

Copy to Windows Clipboard
Paste from Windows Clipboard

Copy Block
Copy Over Block
Move Block
Delete Block

Fill Block


WinClipCopy, WinClipPaste
These two new commands allow The SemWare Editor Junior to access the
Microsoft Windows or the OS/2 Clipboard. WinClipCopy will copy the current
block to the Windows or OS/2 Clipboard, and WinClipPaste will paste the
contents of the Windows or OS/2 Clipboard into the file at the current
cursor location.

This command displays a pick list of all the drives on your system, along
with a directory tree for the current drive. To switch to a different
directory, move the cursor bar to the desired entry in the tree, and press
. To change to a different drive, move the cursor bar to the
desired drive, and press . The selected drive becomes the current
drive, and the directory tree for that drive is displayed in the pick list.

This command searches an entire drive for a specified filename. A list of
all matching filenames is displayed, allowing you to select an appropriate
file to edit.

When you execute this command, it prompts you for the filename for which to
search. A complete name or an ambiguous name (with DOS wildcard
characters) can be specified. By default, the current drive is searched.
However, a different drive can be searched by prefacing the filename with
the drive name (such as, d:foo). The default or specified drive is then
searched, and all matching filenames are displayed in a pick list. To
select the desired file to edit, position the cursor bar on that filename
in the pick list, and press .

If you assign DirTree or LocateFile to a key, you can execute these commands
within any file-related prompt, such as "File(s) to edit:".

CUA-style block marking
QConfig options:
Use CUA-style (shift cursor) block marking (Y/N)? [Y] :
When ON, shifted keypad keys will perform CUA-style block marking

Should Blocks remain marked after CUA marking (Y/N)? [N] :
Determines whether a block marked using the CUA-style marking keys
will remain marked after you type a non-CUA-style block marking or
command key.

Interactively toggles CUA-style block marking mode.

Interactively turn ON CUA-style block marking mode.

NOTE: CUA-style block marking mode only activates the shifted cursor
keys. If you wish to have the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands tied to
the CUA keys, #del, ^ins, and #ins, you will need to manually modify
your QCONFIG.DAT file to make the appropriate assignments.

This is a specialized search command. It causes the editor to begin
searching for a string while you type. As you enter each new character, the
editor attempts to locate a string in the text that matches the incremented
search string.

As you type characters, a case-insensitive, forward search is performed,
beginning at the text position where the cursor was located when you
invoked IncrementalSearch. As each matching string is found, the string is
highlighted in the text.

New Find and FindReplace options:
These options are placed in the "Options:" prompt, not in the search string

[^] Anchor the search string to the beginning of the line (or Block, if
the [L] option is also selected).
[$] Anchor the search string to the end of the line (or Block, if the
[L] option is also selected).

Synchronized Scrolling
This command switches Synchronized Scrolling mode ON and OFF. If switched
ON, and there are multiple windows on the screen, all other windows will be
scrolled when the current window is scrolled. When Synchronized Scrolling
mode is ON, an "S" appears on the StatusLine.

This command causes the current window to be made as large as possible, by
making all other windows as small as possible.

NextEqualIndent, PrevEqualIndent
These commands move the cursor to the next or previous line (as
appropriate) whose text starts in the same column as the current line. If
the current line is blank, the cursor moves to the next or previous blank

This command will swap the character at the cursor position with the
character preceding the cursor. The cursor column position does not

This command will swap the word in which the cursor is positioned with the
previous word on the current line. Any "non-word" characters between the
affected words are preserved.

SwapLines or

This command will swap the current line with the line immediately following
it. The cursor does not change its position relative to the screen.

Returns TRUE if the character at the cursor position in the file is in the
current word set. See the AltWordSet command for more information on word

Toggles (ON or OFF) the option to automatically send a formfeed character
to the printer at the end of each print operation.

Toggles a VGA monitor between 25-line and 28-line mode. This command has
no effect if the video card is not a VGA type.

Toggles (ON and OFF) prompting by the editor for a .TYPE EA when saving a
file that does not currently have any Extended Attributes assigned. This
includes newly-created files, and existing files without Extended
Attributes. If ON, the editor prompts you for a .TYPE EA when you save a
file that has no Extended Attributes assigned. If OFF, the editor does not
prompt for a .TYPE EA.

GotoFirstLine and GotoLastLine
Positions the cursor on the beginning line, or the last line of the current
file. The column position is not changed.

Some additional commands:

- SetBakups Sets ON file Backup mode.

- SetBoxDraw Sets ON Box Drawing mode.

- SetCenterFinds Sets ON Find centering (to center found text, located
by the Find and FindReplace commands, vertically on
the screen).

- SetEnterMatching Sets ON EnterMatching mode.

- SetSwap Sets ON the option to swap to EMS or Disk when the
Shell and DOS commands are executed. (This command
is NOT available in the memory-resident or OS/2

- SetTabsExpand Sets ON Physical Tab Expansion mode.

- SetTabsOut Sets ON Tabs Out mode.

The AsciiChart will now highlight the character under the cursor. If the
cursor is on or past the end of line, then the first character in the chart
(ASCII 0) will be highlighted.

The Match command will now find matching "<" and ">" characters.

The BegFile and EndFile commands will now keep the cursor in the same
column if a column block is in progress.

New SwapPath which includes path as well as drive for swapping.
In QConfig, instead of just a swap drive, you can now specify a complete
path for swapping.

Added the characters '' (129) through '' (165) to both the DefaultWordSet
and the AltWordSet.

Maximum line length increased to 2032.

Help text now compressed to allow more text for help screen.
The QuickHelp command will still only display one screen full. But the
compression should allow you to put more info into the larger screen modes
(such as 50-line mode).

New method of searching for macros.
When a macro is loaded, the editor searches in the following places:

Current directory
"Supplemental Files Path" from QConfig
Directory from which editor was loaded

CopyBlock command works in prompts.
CopyBlock MUST be the only command assigned to the desired key.

Two new attributes:

Menu Quick Letter - this is the letter to press to select the
menu item
Menu Select Quick Letter - this is the quick letter of the currently
selected menu item

New keys now available: (from the keypad)

NOTE: Any assignments to these keys are ignored when the CUA-style block
marking option is ON. The CUA-style block marking can be set in
