One of the features of Vernon Buerg's LIST program is its ability to invoke
your favorite editor in a point and shoot manner. Assuming you have version
7.6b which is the current version as I write this you can customize LIST for
your editor as follows:
;
Using DEBUG and assuming you editor is named MYEDIT.EXE and is in your
PATH. Make the directory that contains LIST.COM the current directory.
Then:
debug
n list.com
l
e 0175 "myedit"
w
q

OR if you are using DRDOS:
sid
r list.com
s75
"myedit
.
w list.com
q

It is important that if your editor name is less than 4 characters long
you pad the name with spaces to a minumum length of 4. This is because
you are actually overwriting the default editor name of "edit". I guess
an alternative would be to rename your favorite editor to EDIT.EXE or
EDIT.COM as appropriate.
;
Now when you are in LIST just select the file you want to edit and move the
cursor block to the filename and press 'e'. You will instantly invoke the
editor you selected.
