I use ISPF as my editor on mainframes & SPF/PC on PCs. Is there a version for
LINUX, or something similar? TIA

there's an XEDIT (i.e. VM/CMS XEDIT) clone (i think it's called 'T.H.E.').
or, do what i do when i wax nostalgic -- run KEDIT (mansfield software's
DOS clone of XEDIT) under DOSEMU. works great. i imagine SPF/PC would
work under DOSEMU, too...

i think there's a "native" *nix clone of XEDIT called S/EDIT, too.

1. Any low cost ISPF editors?

We are a IBM mainframe shop using ISPF on both MVS and VM, and now
have a few RS6000's for voice applications.

As there is a AIX version of ISPF for about $1000, it's hard to justify
that cost for just one or two programmers.

We do have CPEDIT, which is a VM like X-EDIT editor, but is there a
ISPF editor for just a few hundred dollars?
