joe-3.3-1 has been added to Cygwin.
This is the initial release of JOE.
JOE (Joe's Own Editor) is an easy to use, modeless text editor. It uses
many of the same WordStar keybindings used in Borland's development
environment. JOE has many powerful features including syntax highlighting,
i18n support, undo/redo, hex editing, rectangular blocks, multiple windows,
shell windows, command line history and tab completion. It works in the Cygwin
console as well as in xterm and other X terminal emulators. Get the 'aspell'
package to enable spell checking in JOE. Also included are clones of several
other text editors:
joe - Main user interface
jmacs - Gnu-emacs clone
jstar - Wordstar clone
jpico - PICO clone
As always, you should conduct an appropriate level of testing before
using any new product in your production environment.
