What Windows editor can I use to edit unix files?


To whom it may concern
22 Jun 2002
I know there are tons of software titles out there that do this, and I have used UltraEdit (we have ~100 licenses here at work).

But the problem I am running into is within COBOL programs that I am editing sometimes the spacing/tabs do not translate correctly.

Something that looks one way in a Windows editor will look completely different in unix vi/less/more.

Are there any programs (or maybe even settings that I am missing in programs like UE) that will allow me to keep the encoding/formatting the same across the two platforms?

Hopefully there is just some settings in UE that I can change and it makes my life easier :)

-- When I open UNIX files in UE and it asks me if I want to convert it to DOS format, I have been clicking "No" -- I have clicked "Yes" before, but it didn't help this issue...

Any suggestions?

most times you can use wordpad in windows and then use uinx2dos or dos2unix to convert the files

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
