ForthOS Editor


As mentioned in the filesystem document, ForthOS uses block files, generally organized within a block filesystem. ForthOS provides a full-screen editor whose command set is reminiscent of the vi/vim command set. The editor provides the usual full-screen keystroke text editing, and also commands for interacting with the ForthOS filesystem. It is entered with scr# v.


It is expected that you will familiarize yourself with "vi" type concepts using "vi" or "vim" running on your regular PC operating system. The following command lists are only intended to identify which portions of these editors have been brought over to ForthOS in some form.
