My Jed Stuff

For all of my scribbling needs I use Jed, an excellent compact editor written by John E. Davis. Reasons you may want to use Jed instead of other editors include:

I wrote the Borland IDE compatibility mode (big deal - I started from the Jed ships with) and some other Slang files. Writing these, I followed these basic design rules (Goccia's Rules of Thumb):

  1. it should be as helpful as possible; but
  2. it must not stand in the way; therefore,
  3. it should be fully customisable, and
  4. it should be usable by geeks and newbies alike.

If you feel that these modes somewhat break the rules, please feel free to send me your suggestions.

These Slang files are designed for Jed B0.99.18.

Jed Quick Reference

I have also written a quick reference for Jed. It's written in AFT, which converts to good LaTeX and HTML.
